A little while back the folks over at Ohdeedoh tipped us off to the newest marker in the Sharpie line. We've always appreciated their products, but this latest one had many great possibilities. Forget stenciling, you could draw your own design on sofas, curtains, or pillows. Here's the tested results of this cool new product:

Jessica over at How About Orange was recently sent a few of these markers to test out. She recently shared her results and we're rather impressed. Many fabric markers have crazy, insane bleed and unless you're writing your name on a camp or high school band t-shirt at the end of the school year, they had little place in our home.

Jessica shares that there's minimal bleed and that the colors are bright. The design in the photo above is her own and done in the markers. She cautions that the colors should be dry before writing over the top with a new color.

Are you going to give them a try? You could doodle your own curtains! Shower curtains, pillows, duvets, sheets, that old sofa from the college years — they're all possibilities! What would you like to try them out on? Let us know below!
