Recently I was asked how I mark my quilts. So here's all my marking tools. Most of the time I use either Mark-B-Gone pens ( spritz with water and its gone!) or chalk for darker fabrics. Dritz makes a great chalk pen that I broke so I found that their lead will fit in a regular mechanical pencil. Thats the orange pen with the red tape, ain't pretty but it works. The red tape lets me know that its not a regular pencil. The little wheel thingy I rarely use, its more for dressmakers, but I've had it since I was a teenager so its stays in the pile. The Disappearing ink is great if you work quick. There was one time I walked away for about an hour and came back and the design was gone! So choose your tool of choice wisely. The pounce sounded great but I wasn't impressed, one good feature of the pounce is the chalk in it disappears with the touch of an iron. The gray pencil and two white pencil are EZ quilting pencils, Its a LIE they dont want to wash out, and erasing makes a huge mess on your quilt. I sometimes use these for marking HST's because the line will be on the inside of the quilt.
For copying/transferring hand embroidery designs(which I've never done, I've always traced with a light box and a pen of some sort) theres these fine gadgets. You can find a tutorial HERE on how to use these products. I'll be purchasing some of these new to me pens when I work on my CHERRY TWEET quilt. Shopping around on the internet and found THIS and THIS . Hope this helps demystify a few things. If not feel free to ask!
