With permanent markers, everyone can enjoy random coloring and the magic created when alcohol is added! See how it easy and fun it is to dye fabrics, ribbons and lace to create numerous beautiful and original projects.

Author Suzanne McNeillFrom the Author

Adding color to fabrics, lace, ribbon and threads is exciting and simple. Dyeing with inexpensive and easily available markers and inks is really a fun process. Since markers are not drippy, I can watch a movie or take my markers, board and fabric to color almost anywhere - while I am 'waiting' at school or in an office.

I add alcohol at the end and simply let it sit and dry overnight. In the morning, it feels like Christmas surprise with gifts of wonderful color on all my fabrics.

Add fabulous color to scarves, and save all your scraps to create wonderful postcards, ATCs, wearable and quilted collage hangings and gifts.
