    Sewline Fabric Pencils for marking quilts

    Has anyone tried them and are they really water soluble. I got one given to me sometime back but I am scared to actually use it one a quilt....lol. They say they are water soluble but do not iron!!! Anyone have any experiences they want to share with me before I mark up a quilt with it....LOL....thanks.

    I have yet to try mine, but my friend Cindi loves hers. Can you try it out on some scraps and see what happens?

    I love the way it marks and feels. I like the thin line it puts out and it is easy to follow...3 different colors, however, I am afraid to mark my quilt, want to make sure it comes out...LOL....I just need to mark up some scraps and see what happens in a few days and then try to get them out, I guess...LOL...thanks

    I use the Sewline pencil to trace hand embroidery patterns onto the fabric. Erases and washes out beautifully

    I have heard some really bad reviews on these. The pencil doesn't come out of fabric after many washes etc. I was looking forward to buying and using one and after reading the reviews I decided against it.

    I met someone in a shop who told me that Porter & Fons have a mechanical pencil that works really well. I was looking for a light or white one to mark quilting that would come out easily. She was another customer, and the shop didn't sell it, so I'm still looking for it.

    I have used this pencil - have one in green - most of the time it comes out - but I used it on a Kona cotton solid and what happened was the color came out but it left a line that was a shade darker then the color of the fabric - you need to test it on the fabric you want to mark.

    I have been using them for a while and they work great. I only use the white or graphite colors and they have washed out fine, so far.
