He is in the children’s hospital for cancer treatments. Even though we expect this to be a short stay, I spend my nights searching for projects he can do while confined to his room and iv pole. Thanks for taking the time to put this information out for people like us!

You can also lay a piece of wax paper over the project and iron over that. You can even do this on the wrong side as well as the right side and let the wax soak into the fabric fibers completely. This does stay forever. Note. You could let your little ones that you are nor ready to use markers color their shirts with crayons and again, cover with wax paper and press to set the art work.

Imagine all the different designs/monograms you could do.

We found that certain colors took to the process better than others, and that thicker blocks of color were better than the skinner lines. All in all, we had lots of fun thanks for the inspiration!!!

Wait for the alcohol to dry completely, then “set” the color by running the clothing through the dryer. Once you’ve done that, the colors won’t run — or even fade much at all.

I have a big box of colored sharpies. I’m packing them in the suitcase right now to bring back to the hospital. My daughter will love this – thanks for another idea to keep us busy!
