Diy Sharpie Pen Dishcloths

Fun easy crafts, and immediately ready for use. I don't promise you long lasting beauty to these. Before the use, rinse these under cold water, color comes off a little bit.
Marimekko inspired me to experiment with floral patterns. It was fun to make these flowers.

I was inspired to experiment with different colors.

Choose what colors you use. Colors of the flowers. I colored with black the center of the flowers.

When you are ready with coluring. Drizzle a few drops of alcohol on the flowers. It's ready. Alcohol mixed colors beautifully.

    Can you wash the towels after adding the sharpie designs?

      I did this project at camp and what you need to do is let the towels dry completely and then put them in a dryer to heat set them. Color seemed to last a long time after doing this extra step. I also washed them the first time in cold water and then dried them in a hot dryer.

    I did this on T-shirts. Color faded with first wash. What did I do wrong? Or is that just part of the deal with this. I agree with Joan...i’d Like to try it on canvas.

      let them air dry completely and then throw them in a hot dryer to set the color. Helps to keep the colors.
