Squid Shirt

This is my first attempt at bleach stenciling a t-shirt. I cut out a piece of plastic in the shape of a squid, spritzed bleach all around the area I wanted, then sewed on some buttons for a little something extra. I did two rounds of bleach and moved the stencil ever so slightly, so the tentacles kinda got more washed out than I wanted. Next time I will put on less bleach so it doesn't bleed under the stencil, but also refrain from moving the stencil til I'm done.

Very cute. I like how you put the squid on the side, because it looks like it is peaking out. The yellow button eyes really pop out.
