Water-soluble fabric markers are magical: Now you see it . . . and now you don’t! These markers are a fabulous way to trace patterns and transfer designs when quilting, sewing, and embroidering. The marker lines are there when you need them—while you’re working—but vanish from your completed project. Inks vary in colors and how long they last; some fade over time with air, but most require water in order to disappear. Some markers draw thick lines; others thin. The fabric often determines the type of marker or pen you should use. Chances are good one of these recommended pens will be the perfect water-soluble fabric marker for you.
