Top 10 Easiest Fabric Bleaching Projects

Being broke, I am always looking for inexpensive (if not free) ways to fulfill my need for getting creative. So... what could be cheaper than taking a bit of bleach from the laundry room and getting crafty with some fabric?

I found some out of this world fabric bleaching projects on the interwebs and compiled the top 10 easiest here. Click the tutorial title or picture to see Enjoy!

**Bleach is best used on natural fibers like cotton, linen, and rayon.

1) Stamp with Bleach on Fabric
This tutorial is a great one to begin with because of its simplicity as well as Untrendy Life artist Dora M.'s great advice on getting started. How beautiful is this green flower print fabric?

2) Customized Toms
Those plain colored Toms in the back of your closet could use a new life! Why not customize them with a bit o' bleach?

3) Bleach Stencil Pillow Shams

4) Polka Dot Jeans
Why not get some extra wear out of your boring jeans by polka-dot-ifying them. A bleach pen is especially useful for this DIY. FYI: the tutorial is given in pictures (it's just that easy).

5) Lace Impression Fabric
Achieve a beautiful lace effect by spraying bleach over fabric. The simplicity of this tutorial by Farm House Garden is so exciting!

6) Bleach Stencil Graphic T-Shirts
Now you can be a cheeky graphic t-shirt artist with a few simple steps. You will need some patience and a scalpel for making your stencils, but clearly the effort is worth it.

7) Firework Design Napkin
This DIY tutorial is so simple to do but so beautiful that it will make you feel like a true artist! It doesn't have to be a napkin, either... what about doing this print on the ribbon of a wide brim straw hat?

8) Foliage Impression Fabric
How easy does this tutorial from Threads Magazine look? Grab a cotton scarf you are bored of or a yard of fabric that you plan to turn into something else. I can even imagine some beautiful curtains with a foliage pattern.

9) Paisley Bag
This tutorial by Dot will take a bit of patience and focus but look at how rewarding! I am thinking of getting a white bag with an indigo blue.

10) Galaxy Print T-Shirt
