Fabric pencil that can be easily washed out or rubbed off with included eraser. Specially formulated leads give a clear, fine line on fabrics. Lines are easily removed from most fabrics with the special eraser (included in the end of the pencil) or removed by dabbing with a damp cloth or washing.
NB: Always patch test on the fabric to ensure lines can be removed satisfactorily. Erase before ironing fabric.
I recommend these scissors as the ideal scissors for doing cutwork embroidery and hand appliqué. If you have large fingers though, you may find the 3.5 inch stork scissors (below) more appropriate for you.
This beautiful embroidery hoop (215mm/8") has a stand that you sit on, leaving hands free to work on your embroidery. They are sometimes known as "fanny frames". The hoop height can be adjusted, the hoop can be flipped up to access the back of the work, and it can be turned. I use one of these hoops, and I LOVE it.
