Default Marking tool that does Not remove with heat

Hello!

im working on the sew in love BOM by Editya Sitair and find myself in month 7 learning all about y-seams. My marking pens all remove with heat so Iím losing my reference dots when I iron the seams before the next sew. Is there a marking tool that doesnít remove with heat but that can be eventually washed out?

this BOM has been great for teaching me new skills but she doesnít always identify the tools she uses. Almost, but not always.

Crayola washable markers. Needs to be removed with SOAP and water.

​If your fabrics are medium to darks, I use white chalk board chalk.

Another option is to mark the seam just before you sew them. I mark the stopping points just before they are ready to go through machine. I use this technique for sewing binding at the corners.

Be very careful . . .some marking tools will heat seat. I’m currently making this quilt and I bought the templates to do this block. Then mark my stop dots with a generals chalk pencil.

I love Edita's method for doing Y seams. Because you are marking on the wrong side of the fabric in the seam allowance, I don't care if the marks wash out or not. I have used pencil and even an ultra fine tip sharpie to mark the start and stop dots.

Hmmm, I've never had to use soap with Crayola washables. But whatever works for you is right!

Thanks Everyone! Because I’m using the templates I need something with a tip that fits in the little holes.

Where can I find Edita's method of Y seams? I found by Google Edyta Sitar of the Laundry Basket . Is that the one that you are referring to ?
