I have not tried this yet but it looks like fun!
Designer Crayon Cloth
1/2 Cup Vinegar
1 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Salt
1 Quart Water
Make sure that all the sizing is removed from the
fabric by washing it first. Stretch the fabric out
on the shirtboard and thumbtack securely in place.
Color in your design with crayons. Thick heavier
the application of crayons the deeper the color
will be When finished place the design face down
on several sheets of newspaper. Mix 1/2 cup vinegar
and 1 cup water. Dip a pressing cloth into the vinegar
mixture and squeeze out most of the liquid. Place the
pressing cloth over the designed cloth and press with
a hot iron. Mix 3 tablespoons salt and 1 quart of
water. Soak the cloth in this solution for 3 to 4
hours. Gently wash in lukewarm water using a mild soap.
After the cloth has dried, the design will become
permanent. You can launder from now on in warm water
and mild soap.
