CHLORINE COUTURE...

so...i've been itching to try one of these...and i finally got to!...saw this method done by mirandaevans1 on the cricut mb...hers are killer!...click here to check out her etsy shop!...but i was pretty proud of mine!...a friend is doing the 3 day breast cancer walk...and i jumped at the opportunity to make her something!...finding a cure to breast cancer is something very near and dear to my heart...my mother lost her battle to this horrible disease 5 years ago...so anything that i can do to help...i'm there!...

this technique is so easy...and the end results are way cool!...take freezer paper...you can get this at walmart or any grocery store...cut to fit your mat...and put shiny side up...pick whatever image you want and cut...but make sure to flip!....then you're going to iron it onto your tee...shiny side down....that's the reason for the image flipping....put some cardboard in between your shirt...take 1/2 water and 1/2 bleach and put in a plastic mister bottle...and mist away!...i found that the mister works better than a spray bottle...because you don't want to soak the freezer paper or it won't have crisp edges...let it do it's bleaching thing...then with cold water...rinse really well...making sure you get all that bleach out!...you can do a little hand washing at this time if you want...but since i did a couple...i ended up doing a small load of wash...and there you go...a little chlorine couture!....
