I just heard a great tip. Use pizza cutter (the kind with a wheel, duh) to mark fabric...much better than those little smooth wheels that don't hardly leave a trace of the carbon!

Lavender rose, you are very lucky to have that kind of wheel...they don't make them any more!

My pizza cutter is as sharp as a razor but I do have a tool that crimps ravoli dough and I suppose would work as you describe. I have a fabric marking wheel made of metal with sharp little points that works almost too well as it will tear pattern paper.

How creative of you to think of this--I'll try it!

Clever! And probably more comfortable to use since it is bigger!

I love your idea, and would you believe today I just bought one of those little wheels, now I can return that and have money for another pattern.
