Do any of you have experience with crayola fabric crayons? I used to use them for doing t-shirts when I did summer camps--you draw on paper, then iron the desings onto the shirts. I don't remember any problems. Our kindegarten kids at my school did t-shirts in this fashion--our PTO had purchased shirts for each child, and they all did drawings for their shrits, related to our school ocean theme. They looked great. Now--people arecoming back saying that at the first washing, the colors are all coming out. Even when they wash them in cold water, and drip dry. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there something else that could be done to prevent it? I feel terrible, as it was my idea to do the t-shirts in this way.
