Tailor’s chalk usually comes in the shape of a flat triangle or rectangle. Tailor’s chalk will rub right off the fabric when you’re finished with the markings. Therefore, it generally carries less risk than using a pencil or marker. The down side is that it can be messy and sometimes the light coloring is difficult to see on light fabrics. Tailor’s chalk also comes in pencil form, which may be easier to use.
Tracing wheel & paper – Roll a tracing wheel onto your fabric to create a series of small indentations that will serve as temporary marks. Similar to carbon paper, tracing paper transfers markings with applied pressure. Simply sandwich the tracing paper between your fabric and your pattern. Then use the tracing wheel to mark over the pattern outlines and markings.
Tailor’s wax is like a crayon you can use to mark your fabric. Since it is made of wax, you run the risk of staining your fabric. In theory it will come off with the heat of the iron, but that’s not always true.
