"Make it yourself back to school fashions creations"
Children of all ages can make their back to schools fashions and accessories fun and creative.

Children can personalize their back to school fashions with their unique style and designs. It's easy to do with fabric markers and 3D Touch Textile. They can even combine both mediums for fabulous creations to make a very cool fashion statements on their jeans, jackets, T-Shirts, gym cloths and even on their school bags.

Materials & tools:
Plain t-shirts, sweats, shorts in solid colors or various fashion items of your child's choice (you can revive the ones
that you already have or purchase new plain ones)
Setaskrib and Setaskrib+ fabric markers by Pbo in assorted colors and effects
Touch Textile by Pbo
chalk
A piece of cardboard
An iron and ironing board (to heat-set the designs)
Stencils or templates (optional)
Painter's tape (optional)

(Materials for this project are available at arts, crafts, fabric and the above-mentioned stores.)

It's that easy to transform plain t-shirts in creative works of art, or spruce some of last years t-shirts with new designs, patterns and colors to embellish your kids wardrobe. From free-hand style graffiti like tags designs to simple geometric shapes, paisleys, swirls, dots, lines and even scribbles.

SetaSkrib fabric makers and 3D Touch Textile are so easy to use with basic stencil shapes, or freehand style. Setaskrib and setaskrib+ fabric markers are very practical felt tip markers for drawing on all types of fabrics, clothing
and accessories. They are available in fine, broad or "brush" tips, they are available in bright to fluorescent fashion colors. The clear vivid and bright colors will liven up plain fashions in no time at all.

Pre-wash, dry and iron the t-shirts of fashion items to be used. For optimum color adhesion, do not use bleach or softeners. Place a piece of cardboard between two layers of fabric to prevent the color from seeping through.
You can secure the t-shirts to a work area by placing painter's tape on the sides along the borders of the items, for stability while drawing on the t-shirts.

When using fabric markers you can either follow a design that is already on clothing items or you can opt to go free-hand. You can also add your own design; you can purchase simply iron-on transfer paper, available at fabric retail
stores. Some iron-on transfer papers are available with ready-to-use designs. Iron the design onto clothing and apply the fabric marker color where desired.

To use the markers on the fabric, simply press lightly and glide evenly. Children can follow a design of their choice, or work free-hand such as loops, swirls, lines, checks, dots, curves or funky graffiti-style artwork. Chalk can be used to draw designs, it will come off easily after. Once the child is finished or satisfied with the composition, remove the cardboard. Set the T-shirts aside to let them dry and cure
completely at room temperature for 24 hours.

Heat-set; SetaSkrib fabric markers by ironing the reverse side of the item for 3 minutes (cotton or high setting). Once heat-set, the
colorful marker designs are machine washable, ( wait at least 48 hours before washing them). The colors will not fade, crack or peel-
off, and remain flexible once dry.

Heat-setting and care; Heat setting is not required with the NEW Touch Textile tubes. They are especially formulated to simply air
dry and self set. Can be washed at 40 Deg C, 72 hours after application. Short wash with no softener.
Air dry only.

Variations: Clothing items and accessories from jeans, hats, purses, to fabric running shoes can also be embellished with
spectacular colorful designs. Achieve a unique watercolour effect by going over the marker lines with a paintbrush and some water.
They can also be used in combination with and over fabric paints.
