I recently I decided that I wanted to create a unique DIY shirt. I thought I knew what I was doing but I messed up. LOL! Well anyway, my main objective was to create a shirt that was sort of texture-y scratchy looking shirt through the use of bleach and such.

What I used:

· A dark Coloured tee-shirt of some sort that you are willing to possibly destroy (I bought mine at Michael's for 2 bucks! SCORE)

· Regular Household Bleach

· An overflowing sandwich bag filled with grass and weeds (If you don't mind ripping them out of the ground).

· Old Towel for working space/an area that bleach won’t affect.

· YOUR HANDS (Simple DIY right? Anyway let’s get back to business)

What I did:

I laid out an old towel in a safe area so that the bleach couldn't harm and dressed in some old clothes JUST IN CASE I got some on me. I put the shirt on the towel and evenly sprinkled a layer of grass all around the front side of the shirt.

Then, I got the bleach sprayer thingy and sprayed away. Their really is no technique to do so, I just sort of sprayed it in the air and let it “rain” on the shirt. After doing so, I let the shirt and grass lie there for about ten minutes and slowly took off the grass. I again let the shirt rest for a while and then I tossed it in the washer with cold water then dried it. After all that work this it how the shirt came out:

I do not intend this to be a instructional for DIY or whatever because I didn't really know what I was doing. I messed up by leaving the plastic sandwich bag ON the shirt and the corner of it is left un-bleached. I sort of like it though. Once you get past the fact that it looks like Halloween it looks nice. Anyway I just thought I'd share with you what I did on a boring Saturday Afternoon. Heres a picture of it on me. I wore it today.

A few of my friends and I were supposed to hangout and I thought I'd sport my new falied attempt to DIY haha. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a ride so I am stuck here for rest of the day. I think the blog is still in the idle position but I just thought I'd post something.I guess I'll just wear this tomorrow since nobody even saw me.

Paige and I would just like to let you know that we're getting things situated. So the blog is on hold for the time being.


P.S. Aren't these shoes really intriguing?

They're of a brand entitled "CHEAPO". I have no ideawhat that is! A friend of mine has watch from this brand though, Who knows. I found a site that only carries the "pushers" like in the second picture. But for about 60 bucks a pop im not too sure if it's worth it. I personally like these shoes but all my $$$ goes to ebay so I won't be able to own a pair any time soon. Fingers Crossed I guess.
