Do-It-Yourself Home Textiles with Fabric Crayons

Here’s a terrific idea for anyone looking to design their own textiles! Pentel fabric crayons go on just about any natural fiber surface. They don’t bleed and the colors go on super saturated. Softer than regular crayons, but firm enough to sharpen to a pointed edge, they are a great way to let your imagination run wild!
