Yay, progress shots! ^^ Here it is in its various stages.
1. Outline done in crayola marker.
2. Initial painting - and -really- hoping that marker's going to come out.
3. What do you know, it came out!
4. Off-white detail added.
Lots of staining on the edges, but that's the seam allowance, anyway. Also, I've still got to outline the designs in black.

Believe it or not, it just washed out! There was, though, a very faint trace left behind - I think that's because the paint slightly sealed it, so the water didn't reach the marker - but it was pretty negligible.

How did you wash out the crayola marker outline?

Thank you! ^^ I actually just used crayola markers for the outline - they washed out really easily. Then for the paint, I used Jacquard Textile Colors. They were pretty awesome, but if you use them, I'd definitely invest in their colorless extender; I made the mistake of trying to lighten the color with water at first, and it ran -everywhere-. xD

Wow... that looks amazing!! May I ask, what did you use to do the outline, did you use paint, and what kind of paint?
