Howdy folks. I've always shied away from silkcreening and whenever I try to do the whole iron on transfer thing, they get screwed up. So I thought about doing some clothing designs with sharpies. Especially the cute multicolered key chain ones the have out now. But I heard that after some washings the sharpies designs begin to fade. Is there any kind of sealer I can use to prevent this?

Thanks in advance!

no.  writing on fabric is not what sharpies are designed for, it even says so on the package.  use fabric markers instead.
