The Crayola company has had on the market, fabric crayons for some
time. The crayons have a fabric dye within that is heat activitated,
meaning you can use the crayons on a piece of white paper and the
design is transfered by placing the art wrong side up and ironing it
with an old iron.
Check out the Crayola site on line to see the product and you may be
able to purchase some in a local store. I've used it with copy paper
and have had great results.
