Recently goaskmom asked me what I used to trace my redwork patterns onto the fabric. At the time I didn't reply b/c I didn't know what they were called.. but thanks for the reminder. Today I found them and now know what they are called!
I even took a photo ;)The package says: EZ Quilting Washout Pencil Vlu-Pak #882669Grea for quilting, sewing and crafts. Washes out of most fabrics with water.
Three colors, red,white and blue in one package.
IMPORTANT: Always make a test sample on exact farbic to be sure markings will wash or brush off before proceeding. Do not iron fabric before removing markings.
I haven't tested it but I doubt I'll have any problems. I traced lightly on my light box and the markings are not very dark I doubt I'll ever notice any that don't wash out - and besides nearly 99.9% of my stitches cover them up anyway.
Oh, and I wish I could say for sure where they come from... I'm guessing they can be purchased at Joann's. I think I received them as a hostess gift as they were already in my sewing room ;)
Hope this helps you.
Love from Texas!
