Zigzag shirt tutorial

After finishing my Galaxy shirt, I started starring at my big jug of bleach. I want to bleach everything now! And this got me thinking about making some more shirts.
For this very simple tutorial all you'll need is; a t-shirt (or any shirt), some tape (I used masking tape) a little spray bottle, and some bleach.
Use your tape to make a sort of zigzag design on your shirt. Notice how my zigzags look great on the bottom (that's where I started) and get all funky at the top? That's cause I wasn't paying attention. Don't be like me and take your time!
TIP: Iorn your shirt down on the floor for a nicer zigzag because if you don't you'll be spraying bleach on wrinkles. If you're wondering how to safely iron on the floor, use a towel.
Now get your spray on! Remember you don't need a lot of bleach.
This is what my shirt looked like after a few minutes.
Here is the end result. I planned on doing zigzags all the way around my shirt but I only ended up doing one side. I think it still looks cool. And I actually like that the zigzags are kind of off.
Justin calls this my Charlie Brown shirt. :]

P.S. I might have one more bleach and shirt related tutorial... I hope that's okay.
