    I'm helping my kids' class with a project. We're making a Christmas tree Skirt that will have fabric origami stars on it which sort of resemble quilting patterns. I'm trying to figure out the best way to have each of the 17 students initial their work with fabric paint/marker in a decorative way, but have very limited time to actually work on it in the classroom. Is there any kind of heat transferable medium that can be used so they can personalize their signature, then I can easily apply each one on my own time. It may be on the star itself, or labeled next to the star on the tree skirt fabric. Anyone? Any ideas?

    what about doing there initals in a decorative stitch, or a satin stitch let the kids draw on there initals and just follow it.

    You could just apply a piece of fabric with some "heat and bond". I would suggest the lite kind. Then they could sign it and you could cut it into pieces to iron on next to or on top of the stars.

    yep...or you could iron the fabric to freezer paper, have them sign in the BOX on the fabric, then you could peel the paper off and either fuse or stitch down the BOX!
