(Materials for this project are available at arts, crafts, and fabric stores.)
Pre-wash clothing items, dry and iron the t-shirts of fashion items to be used. For
optimum color adhesion, do not use bleach or softeners. Place a piece of cardboard
between two layers of fabric to prevent the color from seeping through.
You can secure the t-shirts to a work area by placing painter’s tape on the sides along the
borders of the items, for stability while drawing on the t-shirts.

like, such as sports, Soccer world cup flags, golf, sailing...

Apply the paint colours straight from the tube. To use touch Textile on the fabric, simply
press lightly and glide evenly. Children can follow a design of their choice, or work
free-hand such as loops, swirls, lines, checks, dots, curves or funky graffiti-style artwork.
Once the child is finished or satisfied with the composition, remove the cardboard. Set the
T-shirts aside to let air dry and cure completely at room temperature for 12-24 hours.
Allow to dry up to 48 hours in moist conditions or when paint is thickly applied. Wait at least
48 hours before washing the newly decorated fabrics. The t-shirts creations will withstand
machine washing and drying. You will be amazed on how bright the colours remain.

CD's which can be use as coasters, on aprons and ties, and made cards on paper. They
