Mouseover the pictures below to see them up close.

Frixion PensPilot FriXion Ball Erasable Gel Pens These pens allow you to erase and rewrite repeatedly without damage. Extra fine needle point creates fine lines on important documents. Durable pocket clip assures greater mobility and longstanding use. The thermo-sensitive gel ink formula disappears under a hot iron or with the friction of the eraser on the pen. Erasing leaves no residue or debris so you  can write on the same spot that has been erased.  However, these marks will come back if you freeze the item (under -14 Fahrenheit.)

Hera Marker from Clover


Hera Marker


The Hera is used for marking sharp lines directly onto fabric. This tool can also be used with carbon paper. The Hera Marker does not use powder and it moves smoothly without damaging the fabric. Pressed firmly on smooth fabric, it makes a fine imprint. The slight crease is a sewing guideline that can be pressed away afterward.  Click on the picture thumbnail to see it up close.

  • Order a Hera Marker for $5.75.  This item is eligible for the first class shipping rate.

Fine Line Air Erasable Marking Pen

Fine Blue Line Water Erasable Pen


Fine point makes a fine blue mark. Marks can be easily removed with water. Here is a tip from Kris: Be sure to soak the fabric thoroughly with water. If you spritz, double check to make sure the blue hasn't gone through to the other side.  DO NOT wash with laundry detergent containing sodium carbonate or sodium hydroxide (AKA "whiteners and brighteners") because that may set the color. If you already have, wash the item in vinegar. The acid in the vinegar will help balance the base in the laundry detergent and may remove the stain.
