Fabric Markers, Pencils, and Chalk

There are various ways to mark your fabrics when sewing. You can use chalk, markers, or pencils to get the job done. However, knowing which one to use with which fabrics can be tricky. There are simple solutions, and there are more complicated solutions to marking your fabric.

What's the Difference Between Fabric Pencils, Fabric Chalk, and Fabric Markers?

Fabric Pencils 

Using fabric pencils is tricky because they can be challenging to see; however, if you use them on dark fabrics, you will get better results. A benefit of choosing fabric pencils is that they don’t dry out, and you can sharpen them to get a crisp line. 

Tailor’s Chalk

With the shape of a triangle, tailor’s chalk will come off the fabric once you don’t need the markings anymore. This creates less stress knowing you can easily rub it off. Just like fabric pencils, sometimes tailor’s chalk can be hard to see on lighter fabrics, leaving it better to use on those darker fabrics. Keeping the chalk sharp will help when you need thinner lines as well.

Permanent Markers

Sometimes, you have fabric that won’t necessarily need the erasure of the marks, or you have a super thick material. This dilemma can lead to the use of permanent markers. They have sturdier tips that can get through the bumpy fabric like a breeze, and the line won’t move. 

No matter what medium you choose, or even if you go with all of them, they are a staple that you will need to add to your kit. Straight and even lines will make for the best project. You can even grab some fabric erasers that are great for erasing marks on quilts. Quilts can be one of those fabrics that is hard to find fabric markers for; however, GoldStar Tool offers quilting fabric markers for your convenience.
