  • My grandkids' latest project

    They drew on old t-shirts (100% cotton) with chalk (not that easy!) and then my daughter went over the designs with a bleach pen - they're so cute! Walter's is the snake in the animated movie The Secret of Kells, and Hazels is, what else, a fairy...

    That is such a fantastic idea and very striking results! My kids would love this - is a bleach pen an actual thing you can buy, or is it a homemade thing?

      Apparently so - it's actually called a bleach GEL pen...so not runny.

      She said she put a piece of plexiglass inside each shirt for teh to draw against. The shirt material moves around so is a little tricky for little hands.

      And evidently the longer or shorter time that you leave the bleach on ... you get variations in color...that could be fun too.

          I know exactly what you mean, Fliss.

          I keep finding new things to do, so many that I am slacking on the actual doing (and yes, I am sick of hearing myself say that too).

            Definitely! I'm forcing myself to finish a project before I start a new one now, it's the only way!
