I was folding laundry this week, I came across this old red pillow case. It is very faded and the fabric is starting to get thin, we have had it for years. I was about to toss it in the trash then I decided I would let the girls do a craft projects with it. We did bleach art on it. They thought it was SO COOL, now we are never going to get rid of this old pillow case LOL. I guess I will let them love it till it totally falls apart.
Bleach or Clorox
Cut your shapes out of contact paper, peel the paper off the back and stick them to the pillow case. Rub them on so they make solid contact with the fabric. Put your bleach in a bottle, go outside or into a WELL ventilated room. You will want to make sure you are wearing old clothes in case you get bleach on yourself…. or if you are feeling free spirited I guess you could do this project naked LOL.
The bottle I used did not produce a fine mist, a FINE mist if best as it coats the fabric but does not make it totally wet. When the fabric is wet it tends to bleed more so my star lines were not perfectly defined. Spray the area you want to turn white, allow to dry then pull off the contact paper. Rinse the pillow case and wash before you use it.
Simple as that you have a fun art project, if teens or tweens do this project make sure they are well supervised by a parent.
