It's my first time trying to sew clothes, glad I done, anyways....
I washed the clothes in the washing machine, but that fabric pencil mark didn't come off.

What should I do to make the marks come off? (without bleaching)

I know it's a pain to do (Oh, how I know!), but I've had good luck taking an old toothbrush and water to basic cottons/jersey. . . if that doesn't work, maybe try treating it like a regular stain?

And maybe taking the pencil back to the store or tossing it out and never getting that brand again.

magic eraser. or dawn dish soap (with bleach but it won't bleach)  I use that for everything.
white crayons work well in the future and you can just iron it out as long as its not silk.
