As we’re now definitely into chilly, rainy fall I’ve been digging through the box of bought-at-the-end-of-last-winter-super-sales-to-hopefully-fit-this-year munchkin gear & am discovering more than a few fantastic deals that I’d forgotten about. Unfortunately, it’s becoming all too clear that the better the deal = the blander the item…fortunately my noggin is brimming with ideas:
Humdrum trousers become playful pants with a bit of bleach & 20 minutes!
Snag some dull cotton pants, a plastic bag, Q-tips & bleach
slice the bag in half & stuff it into the trousers to prevent front/back bleach leakage
pour a bit of bleach into a small container & grab the Q-tips
dip a Q-tip into the beach & dot (or even draw) all over the fabric, flip ’em over and do the other side
I wanted a bright contrast so I let the bleach-treatment sit for 20 minutes. When you’re happy with the amount of lightening simply wash normally with your next load of laundry.
it’s much more fun to run in a circle than pose for photos
Highlight the pockets, waistband & belt loops by simply painting the bleach directly onto the seams with a Q-tip.
