Craft Month 2011 – Day 29 – Bleached Tee

Today’s project is a bleached tee.  I’m quite happy with how it turned out.  Enough so, that I’m probably going to try another one once I come up with a design I really like. I used a Cricut to cut out my Fleur, and stuck it to the shirt with some craft adhesive.  The only…
