I used the lyrics from “It’s Love” by The Softies.
Marvy Fabric Markers in Black (I ended up using 3 of them, and I found them at AC Moore)
brown paper bags
Lay out brown paper bags to match the length and width of the scarf. Then lay the scarf out straight, and try to smooth out any wrinkles. As you can see, I took this picture before I smoothed out the wrinkles.
This little marker is awesome!
From here, you can just get started with writing! It’ll take a word or two to get into a rhythm of how to write on the fabric, but once you get the hang of it, it’s fairly easy. I wanted the script to be extra black, so I ended up going back over each letter a second time to make it darker.
For this specific fabric marker, you just have to let it sit overnight to dry, and then it’s ready to go. No need to iron it to seal in the ink!
Here are some more shots of the finished product:

Um, this is awesome, but I would totally mess it up if I tried to do it myself. You did such a good job, though! You should sell them.. Seriously, for like, the cost of the materials plus like $20 for labor or something, depending on how long it takes you. This is really cool!

This is such a good idea to make what you wear more personal.
