Another Little Tool I Can't Live Withoutcomments (2) August 22nd, 2008
I've tried a lot of different marking devices, and I like a lot of them, but now that I've tried this hera marker -- I'm sold. It's a thin little piece of plastic that simply, but effectively, leaves a crease on the fabric. No ink, chalk, powder, or grease. So there's no permanent mark.
I'm not sure if it will work for every marking task. I tried to mark darts, tracing the lines on the pattern and hoping that the crease would show on both layers of fabric. I could see the mark on the top layer and the pattern paper stays in tact, but I wasn't able to read the line on the under layer. It seems to work best on one thickness. But that's fine for quilting. It's genious. I love it!
