Sharpies x alcohol Use a sharpie (not the fabric kind, they don't spread) and press it onto the shirt for about ten seconds. Using an eyedropper drop a bit of rubbing alcohol on to the center of your design and watch it spread out to create "fireworks." After the alcohol has dried completely, be sure to iron your shirt to heat set the marker.
Use acrylic paint on canvas or fabric shoes to make hard to find character designs. Spray on a clear sealant when finished and it wont wear out. These are Scooby Doo I did for my little girl. Total cost was $3.00 for the shoes plus sealant cost and I already had the paint. What a great birthday present!
