I wanted to share a new sewing tool with you today ... awhile back I attended a product showcase at a local shop since they were demonstrating some special rulers and things. I noticed the demonstrator using this erasable pen to mark her applique pieces. And since I love some office supplies this immediately caught my attention! ;-)
May I present the Frixion pen by Pilot...
You can write on fabric ....
Then iron over it and it disappears!
Of course, I would recommend you test it on a scrap from your project before having a ball writing all over your project! :-) But ... I marked my lines for this project as well as for this one (the loopy stitching in the inner borders) with this pen and it worked out great.
Edited to Add: Apparently this pen is probably not a great idea if your project isn't going to be laundered. Please check out Rhonda's "Lab Results" regarding the performance of this pen over the long term. :-) Thanks Rhonda!
Do you have a favorite tool? I'd love to hear about it.
Happy Sewing! :-)
