Frixion Marker

These pens/markers
 
were originally designed for crossword solvers, I think.  The hard white/grey end of the pen is supposed to erase penmarks.  I don't know.  I bought mine because I'd heard that you can mark fabric with them and they IRON OUT!!  So of course I had to try them for myself.  You can get fine point and a kind of wedge point/marker point
 
and guess what - they DO work!**  Like anything, you would have to test on your own fabrics - but another great option for marking fabric for stitcheries quilting etc...

**a friend has warned me that they may leave a white line on dark fabrics....

  1. Kate I've got some of those and they really are fabulous .... but only on light fabrics. On dark fabrics when you iron them out they leave a white line.
    I love 'em :o)!!!
    Hugs,

  2. After being at the International Quilt Study centre I wonder what the pens leave behind?

    cheers
