Okay... so I bought a package of fabric markers and it say, and I quote, "Heat set to improve colourfastness."  What does that mean??  How do I heat set??  Please help, I am making a birthday present for my best friend (whose birthday is on Friday, btw, I am the most forgetful friend ever!!) and I need some help... Thanks so much... oh and if you have any fabric marker tips... let me know.. Thanks a bunch!!

Somewhere in the small print it should have an "iron on cotton setting for 1 minute" type instruction. I don't hold much with fabric markers unless they are Design brand (that cost about $5 each)- most craft store brands are pretty meh.

Be gentle with your item! Use a pressing cloth or a clean white dishtowel over the top (and probably something underneath for ironing board cleanliness) start at a medium setting and evenly go over the whole thing. Fabric crayons it's real easy to tell when you did it right because the colors pop out all of a sudden. Check frequently- don't scorch your fabric. Good luck!

 Whatever it is I reccomend including instructions with the gift! Just type up a nice little "hand wash cold hang to dry" or some such.
