Does anyone have experience using sharpie pens to draw on fabric (specifically, t-shirts?). I am in the process of doing a t-shirt painting project with first graders where we sponge painted an ocean background around fish shapes that were made with a contact paper resist. I would like to have the kids draw details on the white fish shapes with some sort of permanent marker. Extra-fine Sharpie pens seem perfect, but are they permanent on fabric? Is there something else that would work better?

Thanks for your comments or suggestions.
