Drawing bleach designs on a pair of jeans

Ever wanted to draw funky design on your back pockets of your jeans? Here is how you can easily bleach a design on the back pockets, without the the entire area, while still having a defined pattern.

You will need a bleach pen. The most easily found one is a Clorox bleach pen which you can pick up at a grocery store for a couple of dollars. A bleach pen has a gel bleach inside of its, so you can easily see exactly where the bleach is going.

Next you'll either need to dry your own pattern, or you can use a wall stencil or even a scrap booking stencil as your pattern guide. With a stencil you will want to use a chalk pencil to draw the pattern, then remove the stencil from the denim and then go over topic your chalk line with the bleach pen. You can skip the chalk step, but the pattern will not be is defined as the bleach gel tends to steep underneath the stencil. And if you don't want to use a stencil pattern, just freelance it and draw the lines and patterns how you want.

Allow the gel bleach to set according to the directions, which is usually until it tries, then wash and dry as normally. You now have an awesome pattern on your jeans.

Stumped for ideas for patterns? What about daisies, your initials, a sun or even a fun design of fruits and veggies. Once you see what cut stencils are available, you will probably have more ideas than you have pairs of jeans for.
