In case, you’re wondering, the orange one with strangely misshapen legs is me!
I found these crayons in a local art supply store after having no luck at Michaels and Walmart. The pack was less than $4 and should last ages. To use them, you can either draw a picture on white paper and then turn it over and iron onto fabric, or draw directly onto fabric and heat set with an iron. We used the draw-on-paper method. My son drew the picture, and then I went over the lines to make them a bit darker before bringing out the iron. Josh drew stick figures, so the colours aren't super vibrant, but not bad at all for a quick craft. The package suggest polyester if possible, and this t-shirt is 100% cotton, so maybe that also contributed to the mild colouring. When finished, the shirt is washable, but shouldn’t go in the dryer. Something tells me I’m going to forget and put it in there at some point. Hope the mess isn’t too big.
My son LOVES all the t-shirt crafts we’ve done (applique, painting, and now crayons). He wears his shirts with pride, tells everyone that he and mama made them, and sometimes he even kisses them goodnight. So yeah, more to come!
