Things You'll Need Polyester Fabric




Opaque fabric paint

Wash the fabric to be decorated prior to designing. Prior washing will prevent shrinkage and bleeding of the fabric's dye after application of the markers.

Allow the Sharpie ink to dry completely on the fabric. After drawing, give the marker ample time to dry. Waiting 24 hours will ensure the marker is dry.

Iron over the design. Place a piece of drawing paper over the design and turn the fabric over. Iron on medium over the backside of the design. Allow to cool.

Paint over the design with opaque fabric paint. The clear paint will seal in the marker. Cover the entire area or paint only on the marker lines. Allow to dry 24 hours and wait at least 48 hours before washing.
