    Thank you!

    I also learned that a soapstone pencil will also work.

    I always had a problem with marking on dark fabric but I found the perfect product. FONS & PORTER makes a mechanical pencil with white lead. It's wonderful. The JoAnn's by me is closing & they had everything in the store on sale, so I was looking at the quilting stuff and I found it. I'm making a Halloween quilt and I needed to cut out black cats and bats. It worked great. I have had a regular pencil with white lead but it broke easily and needed to be sharpened often. Someone else had posted something about the mechanical pencil and raved about it and it deserves the praise. This is my favorite tool right now.

    I have traced the pattern on Press-n-Seal food cover. You know what I mean? Like Saran wrap, only sticky.
    I had to satin stitch a patern on a quilt and tried paper, but the paper kept moving and I couln't see through it to re-align it. I placed the Press-n- seal over the pattern and traced it. The Press-n-Seal came up off the paper pattern easy and I stuck it on my material and sewed through it. Just had to tear it away when finished sewing.
    Hope this helps someone out there.

    The white chalk pencil works best for me. I had no luck with the pen.
