    Using Dark Fabric ????

    I have never used dark fabric until now. I purchased some very pretty fabric to make myself a wallet ( not a NCW ) and I would like to be able to draw lines on the fabric to place the pockets I need etc.
    What fabric marker ( this fabric is black with gold and navy blue print ) would you suggest I use ? I will be going to Jo-Ann's later this am to purchase a marker and thought someone might be able to advise me !

    Thanks so much !

    Check out Fons and Porter or Sewline mechanical pencil type markers. The lead comes in white, pink, regular pencil color and other colors I think. It draws a very fine line and erases easily. Also refillable just like any mechanical pencil. I just love them and have two.....one dark, one white. Use a coupon and they are a pretty good deal.

      I also use the Fons and Porter one and I just love it. I bought a second one, one for white and one for black. They work great.

          Can you use tape to mark on your dard coloured fabric?

            I use General's white charcoal pencils for marking on fabrics, it brushes off. BUT never wash in woolite because the marks become permanent.

              I use tailors chalk (comes in a triangle form) or slivers of soap - you know the pieces left over when you've used most of the bar but it just doesn't fit in your hand any more? Both wash out easily and I've never had a problem with them.
