I need some help from you crafty bloggers

I was Blog surfing and came across a tutorial for making a tote bag from fabric that a child had drawn on with crayons, the mother did something w/ the fabric, newspaper and an iron to 'set' the design and made a cute tote bag for the childs Grandmother.
Reagan wants to make one like it for her G'ma and Aunts for Christmas and I'm darned if I can find that post.
Anybody out there know where that Tutorial is ?

If you can't find the tutorial and I'm no help there) improvise. Have her draw something, scan it to your cmputer, print on the iron on transfers, then you just iron onto your fabric.

My printer is black and white, that's why I'm looking to do it w/ the iron and newspaper.

Is it possible she used fabric crayons? Because Crayola has some fabric crayons you do this with. I also think there's a way to set crayon on fabric with wax paper, so you might Google that.

Let us know what you figure out!

No, it wasn't fabric crayons. It was regular crayons.
When I figure it out I'll let you know, because it was super cute.
I'm really hoping somebody else will know what tutorial I was talking about

Thanks Bean, that's not the one I was remembering, but heck it works LOL and those crayons will work better than regular ones.
