    Beautiful! I had never heard of doing this with sharpie markers, but it is very pretty.

    Mine didn't turn out anything as amazing as hers. We sprayed the alcohol on. She says she brushes the alcohol on - her colors are more blended. Yes I hope she does a tut.

    Do you have any more specific directions for this?

    Can't wait to try this!

    Please do send a tutorial or at least a few more instructions on how much alcohol and anything else you learned.

    My 11-year old is VERY interested and wanted to know if you used fat or thin sharpies?
    We have a plan to get started this summer after she finishes another project.

    Making fabric designs with Sharpie Markers. I have broken down the process in easy steps so I hope you give it a try.
    Photo 1- setup your work area-pens, 91% alcohol, brushes, muslin, tape, plastic protection, papertowels
    Photo 2 - drawn large image in pencil
    Photo 3 - fill in design with sharpie markers using scribbles, thin lines, hash marks, different kinds of lines and blending colors-leave some space for ink to bloom
    make several and practice-it helps to tape muslin down on plastic or back with freezer paper

    Thanks for the tut. I see you have all sizes of brushes - do you different sizes for differnt blending? Dip the brush in the alcohol then blend? Also when your done - do you "set" your design with an iron while its still wet? Sorry so many questions ................. but this is so neat!

    Let the work dry overnight -then risne and set with iron to complete the piece. You can machine stitch, hand embroider, add beads & embellishments to enhance. Moosegirl

    When you added the alcohol, did you brush it on somehow or just dip the brush in alcohol and then dab it on in places? Sorry about the questions, I just want to understand how to do this cause it is so neat and I want to make some quick flower wallhangings.

    Sounds like a great way to entertain children and turn their artwork into something special for them!

    I like what you did with the sharpies. They are just so special. Are these mug rugs or mini quilts to hang? Do you sell them?

    This is sooo cool. Gotta try it! My favorite (hard to pick) are your sunflowers.
    Thanks for sharing this with us and giving us the tute.

    These are SOOO much fun to make! I had a ton of fun with these this fall. I did big letters and wrote my sons name out for his room. Very addicting. I just kept doodling and doodling to watch it change

    I love these, they were amazing before you finished them however they got even MORE amazing after they were finished! lol
    They look like water color without all the mess! It would make a great project for younger kids too (scouts?) I trust mine with sharpies more than paints! lol
