    A graphic tee is any shirt with a printed design on the front of it. Sometimes they show images or words, and sometimes both! Graphic tee shirts are very trendy in popular clothing stores. Do you have any shirts that are graphic tees? What do they look like? Do they have images, words, or both?

    Place a sheet of paper inside a 100% cotton shirt, between the front and back layers of fabric, to prevent bleed through. Draw your design with Crayola Bright Fabric Markers, making sure you saturate the cloth. Apply several layers of color to increase the brightness of the drawing. Stain Advisement: Fabric markers are permanent on clothing and contain colorants that may stain household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover your work surface. Recap markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position. Do not shake markers.

    When you are finished, ask an adult to iron your design. Set iron on cotton setting and iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. Or place garment in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting. This will fix the color to the fabric.
