    I have just started to practice stippling/meandering and I want to mark a design on my fabric. The pen I have fads so quickly and I know that there are a lot on the market, but before I spend my money on something new I want feedback!

    What fabric markers work best for you?

    Thanks

    I was afraid to use the washable crayola, glad to know they work well.

    NOT THE PENCILS! My mom warned me, that the pencil ones you have to mark over and over to get a line dark enough to SEE, but she thought maybe they'd be better after 20-30 years. UMMM NO! Just bought and pack and they're awful...

    And not the ones that "vanish" after 72 hours. They either vanish in 20 minutes or not for weeks/months....

    I've had success with the Water Erasable Fabric Marking Pen. I don't know who makes it because that is the only wording on the pen that I'm looking at right now. I bought it at a local quilt shop on their advice. It disappears with even a spritz of water from a spray bottle. The color I have is blue..not sure if it comes in other colors. The quilt I'm working on is light, so not sure how this would work on darker colors.
