Last minute Fathers day DIY gift: Bleached design t-shirt


 ...and I really mean last minute!!

Having just got back from Norway, with my parents in tow...because today we are celebrating Little Miss Moo's 5th birthday....Fathers day completely slipped my mind this year!!
bad mummy!!

But somehow I've managed to save the day, with just a plain cheap t-shirt from the supermarket and some bleach!!

If you are also stuck for something for dad tomorrow...this will only take 5 minutes to make, and will be a unique present that shows (although you might be forgetful...) you care!!

Take a plaint -shirt (If you have no time to buy one, raid their wardrobe!!), place a piece of baking paper and an old tea-towel inside (to prevent the bleach from seeping through to the back of the t-shirt). Fill a pointy nozzle bottle with thick bleach...or use a brush...

...and your motif on the front of the t-shirt in bleach, like LMM demonstrates above...
She chose to write " I <3 (heart) DAD"
Keep it simple...


Leave the bleach to work its magic for 10-20 minutes, then pop it in the washing machine on a quick cycle to rinse the bleach off...hand to dry....

Ta Daaaa!
Daddy is proudly sporting LMM's DIY fathers day T-shirt!!
I think it looks rather cool with all the drips as well!!

And LMM is so proud that she made her Dad a t-shirt for fathers day!
Everyone's a winner!!
(And I'm NOT in the bad books....phew!!)

Now on to celebrating our baby's 5th birthday....Where did the time go??

Norwegian summer...making memories

making memories...

Just wanted to share some instagram pictures from our little holiday here on the west coast of Norway... little snaps from our days in the sun, a taste of the coastal life!!

 Picking posies...


blue skies and open sea...

wind in our hair...

Faster, faster..

Collecting shells.. the beach

...Another day, another beach...Catch of the day: bucket full of crabs..

  At the lake...


through the woods... 

We've had a great time....wish it would never end! Feeling recharged!
I guess sometimes you've got to get off the merry-go-round and learn to love life again!!
