I bought a green canvas tote bag that I was planning to draw on with those markers that you use to write on shirts. The bag I bought says "No pre-washing is necessary to decorate" then it gives me a list of directions of how to wash the bag if needed. The marker I'm using says to apply it on prewashed fabric.
So my question is, do I have to wash the bag before I draw on it? Does it matter? What happens if I don't wash the bag?
The marker I'm using is "DecoFabric" and the canvas tote bag is (I think) "Totally You"
