Stars Sweater


On a recent camping trip we lay in the grass, looking up into the sky.  There were so many stars. Light pollution makes it almost impossible to see many stars in Barcelona. So it was understandable that the smallest princess of our household thought we'd have to watch them to make sure they didn't disappear: "You watch the moon, I watch the stars. Ok?", she said.

It's the first time I've tried bleach on fabric. Some of the dots have turned out quite big but to her it is a stars sweater.

Hello Séverine. Thank you.

Heather. No problem at all. Copy away. I think everyone can do with a stars sweater.

This is so beautiful - I want one!!! Really, it's amazing!

Groovymama said...

...and then a question. Do you spray the bleach on - or how do you work with it?

Trula said...

Thank you.

@ Kilee. Sure, but I am afraid I don't quite understand how to do it.
Can you help me out?

@Groovymama. I used an old toothbrush to create some sort of spray effect.

Gorgeous! I've tried to create the same effect with gold paint, but it didn't work as the paint was too thick. Next time, I'll try bleach :-)
