    Someone was telling me today about a chaulk type pencil that they used to go around their freezer paper appliqué piece and it keeps it from fraying. She couldn't remember the name....she said it wasn't Roxanne. She said you go around the freezer paper with this pencil (it's white) and then you heat set it with an iron which hardens it. This keeps the edges from fraying while needle turning the appliqué piece. Does anyone know the name of the pencil she was talking about?

    I'm pretty sure it's Clover Fabric Folding Pen. I haven't used one but I read good reviews about it.

    Does it wash out after it's appliqued?
    I mean, does it stay hard? Does it show through the fabric?
    It sounds interesting, I'm also waiting for a good answer.

    I just googled Clover Fabric Folding Pen, and that's it, at the amazingly low price of $11.00, with new reviews and not enough info to answer our questions. Hopefully someone has used it..
