You will need FABRIC MARKERS AND SHARPIES, cardboard or old mat board (optional), butcher paper, masking tape - the brown kind or blue removable, scissors, coffee cans with plastic lids, rubber bands and a spray bottle with denatured alcohol & water mixed. REALLY!
We do these squares at events like Race for the Cure and actually bring sewing machines and sewed them at the event! It was a great attention getter. Good for class projects, auctions, opportunity drawings, too.
Here are two ideas to do with kids and fabric markers.
*Option: Have templates of hears like the example in this post, pre-traced with SHARPIE or FABRIC MARKER onto the square to keep a theme going.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHARPIE AND FABRIC MARKER: COST is similar. SHARPIE can fade and needs to be ironed and sealed into the fabric. Works well to do the same with fabric markers, but SHARPIES are PERFECT AND PREFERRED for this next idea.
This was a finished quilt I made using Hoffman's batik fabrics. It was an auction project at our school. It lives here now!
IDEA 2: TIE DYE SQUARES
This is when you need the spray bottle, the coffee cans w/lids and rubber bands.
DO NOT USE FABRIC MARKERS FOR THIS - USE SHARPIES
Cut 6-8" squares. SMALL coffee cans work best.
You need the lids.
