I am now wowed by bleach pen design! This is my first experiment and I luv it. Super easy, great with different fabrics and designs. This type of DIY project is one of my favorite revivals. I found these great sunny yellow (although the photo doesn’t show it well) napkins freshly pressed at an estate sale. They have a linen look but are actually a polyblend of some sort.
Finding the bleach pens was actually the biggest challenge since not a single store in my neighborhood sells them. I did find them on Amazon for a great price. The next super easy step is to draw your design with the bleach pen. I did two at a time with aluminum foil under the napkin to avoid the bleach soaking through. Since these are a polyblend I let it sit for about 30-60min. Rinse with cold water and wash with white fabrics the first time. Here’s my bleach pen design…
What else can you do with bleach pen designs? Here’s a few great examples and I’m sure a shirt, pillow sham and possible a table runner is on my list!
Enjoy your time making a bleach pen design!
