To make the design permanent, you will need to iron the finished product. Please follow the instructions with the fabric pens supplied. (Note: the box states "non-washable" once fixed, meaning the colours won't wash out, not that the item can't be washed!).
Fabric Doodle Art
- Draw out your design on paper first, and sketch it onto the fabric in pencil before going over with a fabric pen. (If you draw your design on paper with a marker or felt tip pen, you might be able to trace it through onto the bag if you place it inside!). Be sure to sketch very lightly as any heavy/dark pencil will show through lighter colours.
- If you have something particular in mind, try googling "line drawing" or "outline" plus the image you want, you might well find a simple, outline design you can print out to trace through onto your bag.
- Put an old cereal box or other flat packaging inside the bag when colouring to make sure the ink doesn't come through to the other side.
- Place a protective covering under the bandana before colouring in to prevent any ink spreading onto your work surface.
- Make sure you push the lids back onto the pens till they "click" after use to prevent them drying out.
- Have fun!!!
