My mother made Valentine’s Day very heart-warming for us growing up. Coming into the kitchen that morning we kids would be greeted with a special place setting and various cards on our plate. There was always a little box of chocolates and a small gift that told us, “You are Loved! I think you’re special!”
These easy panties are a quick and cute way to bless some little girl with her own special fancy-pants this Valentine’s Day. All you need are these panties from Amazon, a red and purple Sharpie™ pen, and some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
As you’ll notice from the pictures, I just pulled them out of the package and started drawing. Hence, lots of wrinkles! But they will come out when I iron them (to set the ink) and then launder. It helps as you are drawing to use light, quick strokes. The fabric will tend to ‘grab’ the tip so you can’t draw long, perfect lines. But this is okay because you are going to blur those lines like a watercolor with your cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.
Just draw your designs and then dip your cotton swab into some rubbing alcohol. Trace over what you just drew with the cotton tip soaked with alcohol. The lines will instantly blur. I found the purple blurred more than the red. Your mileage may vary.
I set the colors with an warm iron, then washed in moderate temperature.
This project only takes about 45 minutes, less if you’re not too fussy!
