This is a 12 inch block made using Sharpie permanent ink pens.
The other day I was checking out all the great blogs in the Think Christmas Blog Hop and found a great blog called Doodling in my Mind with a tutorial on using Sharpies on fabric. Last winter I did some pillows with my grandchildren which you can see here. Darla's work was so beautiful (you'll see it below) that I couldn't wait to dig out all of my Sharpies and supplies to try this. I used an old sheet for the fabric.
Doodling in my Mind where you'll find lots of other great creations! She also designs fabrics and I just realized she is the sister of Linda at Buzzing and Bumbling so I have actually seen her fabrics before! Small internet!
I heat set my design several times and used permanent Sharpies. When I made the pillows with my grandchildren I think I only heat set them once and the last time I was at their house I saw that one of them had bleed after washing but it still looked nice.
