Pattern & Marking

Whether you are sewing garments or home décor, some projects will require you to temporarily mark the placement of closures, darts, pockets, appliqués, stitching lines and other design elements. Sometimes a pin or a small snip in the seam allowance will do, but you often need more precise markings that won't disappear too quickly but also won't mark your fabric forever.

Remember to test your chosen marking tool on a scrap of fabric first. See how well it shows up and how easy it is to remove.
