.  t-shirt material is tricky!  why didn't it work out so well?

bethiebb ... don't know what went wrong, I follow instructions and the sugestions giving here on crafters.org  but it just didn't work for me.  The only I got from the chacopaper was very light almost invisible lines...I was jut stitching by instinct lol.

I've not tried the pencil. If you have a Michael's near you, they sell the Sulky transfer pen (like a black marker) - it works really well!
ok can you tell me where in the heck they sell the Sulky transfer pen like where do they place it in their store? because I looked in the paint pen section because someone said they found it there?  I have searched high and low for the sulky transfer PEN. my craft store does have transfer pencils in blackish brown. How do these work?

Anyone know of a good brand of washable fabric pen to try?  I was at JoAnn crafts earlier and only saw pens (sadly I forgot the brand, Dritz maybe???) that disappear within 48 hours.

Has anyone tried crayola washable markers to transfer their embroidery patterns?

yeah, being that I work at a school, I have used the crayola washable markers.  They are good for use with fabric and wash out completely.  I have also used the "wet-erase" markers with great success.  But you have to be planning to actually wash the item: neither one is very easy to just rinse out of part of the item without washing.

I am open to personal swaps!

Thanks for the advice.  I think next time I'm out and about, I will pick up a pack of thin tipped crayola washable markers.

Clover makes a good water-soluble marker.

Thanks for the tip, the saleslady at a different craft store told me all clover products are quite good.

I feel your pain! I looked all over Hobby Lobby and Michael's,even though I don't like the Michael's in our town, plus it's much farther awy, but I can only find the red pencils. They work okay for me, but I haven't tried anything eleaborate, plus I don't know how to sharpen them. A regular pencil sharpener?

i think transfer pencils and pens are the same, just make sure not to get 'air soluble' or 'disappearing' --those marks disappear in 24-48 hours.  i would think a pen would be easier to use on fabric.  in addition to sulky, clover is supposed to be a very good brand.  http://www.clover-usa.com/catalog.html (click marking tools) is the website and they sell transfer pens and pencils.
