So, you might have seen the napkins I made with the bleach stars. I decided to try it with towels. Oh my goodness, I love these, too! These are blue towels that I bought from the dollar store. I painted stars on them with bleach, let them air dry, then washed and dried them. If you try this, be sure to use a cheap paintbrush because the bleach eats it up. This is how they look. I will be using these all summer!! I don’t know if it’s because I share a name with a very famous flag designer, but I just love Americana. We are so blessed to live here in the United States of America. I love honoring this great country.

  1. What a brilliant idea! I love them!! I am the queen of getting bleach on things I shouldn’t…this would be a fun project where I could get bleach on something!

    Came over from the Patriotic Party to see your towels. Are you sure it is that easy? I know I would have bleach everywhere! Would a bleach pen work?

      Thanks, Donna. The bleach pen didn’t work for me at all – I tried it on the napkins I made earlier this week. I don’t know why it didn’t work, but it forced me to try something else that did work. Funny how that happens. :)
