    I have been meaning to try carbon paper but haven’t done it yet. I do have a tracing wheel inherited from my grandmother and I find that for a lot of fabrics, I can just trace over the pattern onto the fabric, without any carbon paper or other ink-leaving device, and the divots left by the wheel are deep enough for me to see the line when I am cutting (this only works if I cut immediately after I trace each piece but that is how I usually do things anyway).

    Gals, any tips for marking wool? I’m off to google tailor’s tacks in the meanwhile.

    I always use tailor’s tacks for marking on wool. I have a spool of vintage thread from my late grandmother’s haberdashery stash that is quite thick but also very silky and it is my go to option for this task.

    Ok, good tip — I have some thread a bit like that in a bright color I don’t often use — will try it, thanks!

    Tailor’s tacks, baby! But you already figured that out.

    I sometimes use tailor’s tacks and sometimes use tailor’s chalk. Depending on the fabric, they can both work.
