You can see all the materials you need at a glance in our photo. For our design, we opted for the classic edding 3000 marker with a medium wide nib. Before you start, pick out your favourite colours. Don’t forget our brand new addition: we now offer sets of 5 markers in coordinated colours. If drawing freehand isn’t your thing, you can print out the alphabet sheet that can be found on our website and use it as a template for copying.
Keep the letters nice and straight. It helps if you draw a few faint pencil lines (well spaced apart) on the bag to guide you.
If you wish to make your alphabet letters look a bit more interesting, why not draw them on the line but in different sizes? If you prefer, you could make your own template on parchment or greaseproof paper or buy a suitable letter stencil. Start by drawing the outlines of the letters using the permanent marker.
Once you’ve done that, colour them in however you want, with dots, diamonds, squares or cross-hatching – whatever takes your fancy!
