Being sponsored by is awesome, it gives me opportunities to explore new DIY products, such as the Pebeo SetaSkrib fabric markers.  They work magnificiently, giving you plenty of room to let your creativity loose.  This time I explored the DIY bleach technique + aztec denim short.  New to bleaching?  It’s soooo easy!  Follow the simple steps to create your own style :)

Material needed:

  • 1-2 liters of bleach water
  • Thrifted, cut-off denim
  • Pebeo Seta Skribe fabric marker
  • Use this pattern or create your own!

    I love these and I think I’ll try them! Does the fabric pen fade after use and washes? And also in other bleaching tutorials people have used half water, half bleach. What difference does that make?
