Children’s Craft Showcase – Dying fabric with Permanent markers 1

Permenant markers
Surgical Spirit (from the chemist)
Jam Jars
Plain Fabric
Elastic Band

Put your fabric over the jam jar and secure with the elastic band.  Using your pen draw a pattern on the fabric.

Circles work best, but any pattern will do.  Leave a gap between the lines for the colour to bleed.
Take a syringe and fill with surgical spirit and then drop in to the centre of the fabric.

Move the fabric to a blank area and repeat as required.

I washed the fabric after we dyed it and some of the colour did come out, but not much and then I heat set it with a hot iron.
