Over on Pinterest, there’s a million “pins” for “Tie Dyeing with Sharpie Markers”. I decided that if this could work for shirts, it could certainly work for fabric for a quilt.
I have a giant multicolor pack of Sharpies, and I stuck to the brand just in case it didn’t work with another brand of marker. Similar to the pins online, I took care to elevate the center of the piece so that the rubbing alcohol ran to the edges of the fabric piece.
In the end, I could have used more colors and gotten more coverage, but as a test piece goes, it shows that it works!
