Sometimes marks just don't stay in place, especially with "problem fabrics". I've found, especially on fleeces, the marks will disappear as soon as I move the pattern piece. In some cases I use "sticky dots" that can be found with stationary or office supplies. I can draw notches on them or use numbers and/or letters. For the most part they do stay in place as long as I want them to.

Great idea! I use the sticky dots to remind me which side of the fabric I'm using but never thought to use them as markers.

I have been trying to come up to an alternative way to mark dots & notches but have the opposite problem in that I used the marking chalk and the colour won't come out of light coloured fabric .... and doing tailors tacks takes too much time when making four or five garments from the same pattern in different sizes and time is of essence - will try this way ... thanks
