in my quest for actual textile ink at michaels, i came upon DecoArt So Soft Fabric Acrylics: http://www.decoart.com/cgi-bin/Products.cgi?So-Soft_Fabric_Acrylics
it was only $1.49 a bottle, so i bought one to see if it worked.  it's the most fabulous thing!  i did a little test piece on a t-shirt scrap, let it dry maybe 3 hours (bottle says 48), tossed in the washer and dryer (supposedly also a no-no.)  and it lived!  the coverage is excellent, and the paint is almost rubber-like but can't be peeled off.  the dryer did make it a little duller and the tiniest bit flaky.  i wouldn't but anything done in this in the dryer on a regular basis, but if you accidentally do so once, it won't kill your project.  it comes in regular, neon, glitter, and pearl colors.  i used pearl plum--gorgeous!
