I find that fabric paint can make the fabric much too stiff for stitching after it has dried, not impossible but definitely difficult. The crayon tinting while not as vibrant in color at times leaves the fabric much more supple.

HTH!

Don't your stitches get flattened when you set the crayon with the iron?

Not too much.  A sheet of paper between the iron and fabric seems to minimize flattening of the stitches.

Maybe fabric markers? I've only used crayons.

I see that Crayola now is making a beeswax crayon. Do you suppose they would be really nice for the tinting  of fabrics or maybe more messy. I am getting a box from amazon I think.  I am too far away from places with stores and no one around here carries things like that.

I know I have to do this!

I bet they would be okay. Maybe don't use as much tinting if you are going to iron it. Mmmm....beeswax crayons!
