    Choose a 100% cotton T-shirt. Decide where you'd like to decorate it. Pick the colors you like best, and a theme if you wish. Sketch your design ideas on paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.

    Cover your art area with newspaper. Put newspaper inside your T-shirt so the colors do not bleed through to the other side. Use Crayola Fabric Markers to draw your designs directly on the shirt. Choose colors that show up well on the shirt. Crayola® Fabric Markers stain clothing and surfaces, CLOSE ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED.

    Use stencils or draw your design freehand. Remember, these fabric markers are permanent on clothing. Recap markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position.

    There are two ways to heat set fabric marker colors. Ask an adult to heat set them by placing your shirt in a clothes dryer set on the hottest setting for 30 minutes, or ask an adult to set an iron on cotton. Cover an ironing board with newspaper and a layer of white paper. Iron on the reverse side of your designs, using a back and forth motion, for 4 minutes.

    To prevent bleeding of fabric marker colors, wash items separately, in cold water, for the first three times. Machine dry.
