Lesson learned for the day: do not plan on making cheese until we know where to get all of the odd little ingredients. On the plus side, we did find a place to pick up what we need and will be there at 11:30 tomorrow when the store opens. However, the fact that we didn’t get to make cheese doesn’t mean that the night has to be a total bust: instead, it’s time to upcycle some t-shirts!
For the unfamiliar, upcycling is the process of remaking something old or worn into something interesting and new. Today, we’re going to take a $2 t-shirt and turn it into something awesome!
As you can see above, we have the aforementioned shirt, a piece of chalk and a bleach pen. The process is simple: Draw a pattern on with chalk ( we did an outline, but not the whole patten exactly) and then draw over it with a bleach pen!
Afterwards, let the shirt sit for a while, and then wash it ALONE! Please don’t bleach an entire load of laundry on our behalf.
When it’s all said and done, you should have a shirt that’s a little more fun to wear, and may even get some compliments 🙂
And that’s the process: it’s not long, it’s not complicated and it’s a lot of fun. It’s also something that can be done as a family: kids can draw on a pattern they like with chalk, and dad or mom can take care of the bleach work.
Tomorrow we will return to our regularly scheduled program, only a day behind
Let us know what you think of the shirt!
