Fabric Sublimation Crayons From Wear Your Art

 

Fabric Sublimation Crayons - a fun way to wear your art. Transfer your drawing to fabric or a t-shirt. See how to use them, & get some ideas.

 

Ever fancied easily making your own t-shirt designs, or transferring a drawing over to fabric? Well these crayons are a great way of getting started making your own t-shirt art.

They are a fun way for your child to make their own t-shirt designs. Plus, you could cover over stains on an old t-shirt and keep it going for much longer, brighten up some old fabric, or make a host of decorations.

 

How To Use Fabric Sublimation Crayons

 

Elizabeth currently loves the program “Gabby’s Doll House” on Netflix, but there aren’t any t-shirts out there with any of the characters on. She also has a whole load of plain white t-shirts which were handed down to us by one of my friends, and I had an idea that we could upcycle one of these with some t-shirt art.

The crayons can be used directly on fabric, but I printed out a colouring page or her favourite character Mer-Cat. I carefully coloured over the outlines of the drawing, and then let Elizabeth colour the drawing in.

Colouring in using the crayons

Taking the t-shirt where we  were printing the design, I placed a sheet of paper between the front and back layers. I set my iron to a sythnetic setting without steam. Then, I took the coloured in page, and placed it where I wanted it on the t-shirt front. Making sure that the paper did not move, I ironed over the paper for a couple of minutes.

(NB. you do need to remember that writing will be reversed if you use this technique – so remember to mirror print the image before colouring)

Ironing and transferring the design onto the T-shirt

Finally the finished design was revealed! And Elizabeth is delighted with her new t-shirt. The t-shirt can be hand washed. 

 

What Did We Think Of The Crayons?

 

Elizabeth was thrilled with the finished product. I will say that it may take me a little fiddling around to get a result that I am happier with.

The crayon colours do not look the same on the coloured in page to how they come out on the fabric. It may be worth doing a test on a spare piece of fabric before doing the real thing, though this wasn’t able to be done in this instance as it was a t-shirt. Apparently a high polyester fabric works best, and the t-shirt was cotton.

That being said, the technique is very easy and the instructions are very clear. I think that these would be great fun for most children, and I can think of so many ways that we can make things with them in future. What would you make?

Stephany is the force behind WearYourArt.net. Last year she launched her wonderful fabric crayons, and before lockdown she was showcasing them at the very popular Knit and Stitch roadshows around the country.

She is a textile artist/art facilitator that is crazy about recycling. And if you go over to her site you will find some brilliant examples of her work and some great ideas on how to use the fabric crayons to create some amazing decorative and clothing ideas.

    Funky new t-shirt, Elizabeth!

    And this is a great write-up, Jo. I hadn’t heard of the term ‘sublimation crayons’ before but I’ve come across pens for doing similar with clothing. I imagine crayons are a bit harder to use given their thickness so you may not get the same precision, but it’s a great idea for the little ones. Like you say, you can give an old piece of clothing a new lease of live and cover over stains and marks too! Good luck to everyone entering the giveaway. xx
