Has anyone else had this problem? I used a water soluble ink pen, on one of my embroideries (that i have spent MANY hours on now) and it wont come off! when i put water on it, the blue ink disappears at first but but comes back later even worse. It just keeps spreading! I dont know what to do, i am scared to ruin the piece. Anyone have this happen before? Help!

Oh no! What kind of fabric is it on? If it's white, I've used a bleach pen on it, very lightly. If it's a darker fabric, maybe a detergent pen? Who made the pen-maybe you can contact them and ask for help.

yup, its on white. its just that linen look fabric. grrrrrr! i have soo many hours invested in this piece, i am scared to ruin it. i dont know who made the pen because i threw it out after this happened on another piece. i didnt realize i had used the same pen for this one also. i guess i will try a detergent pen and see how that goes. thanks Kittykill!

Both Mistress T and I have had the same problem. We used the fine tip of the detergent pen. I hope it works-stupid disappearing ink pen that doesn't disappear! Good luck!

The only reason I've ever had disappearing ink not disappear is because I ironed it. Apparently, some types get heat-set, which I didn't know until it was too late Tongue
