I've cut several of my scraps of brightly colored knit material into 1" to 2" squares and keep them in my pin box(I use a plastic sandwich box). When sewing fabric with no obvious right or wrong side, I can then pin a piece easily to the side I've detirmined to use while pinning the pattern pieces to the fabric.

These are easier to see than stick on dots that don't stick to all fabrics, tape that may leave residue, or chalk marks that rub off too soon.

Thats a good idea. Thinking aloud, I could use the fabric samples sent to me in the post when the seasons over. I've often wondered if i could use them any way. Thanks
