I do not consider myself an expert in embroidery in the slightest, and I would say that is probably the skill I need to work on most when it comes to amigurumi. My problem has always been that although I can picture what I want the embroidery to be in my head, it's very hard to translate that to stitches without a pattern to follow. I've considered using a sharpie to indicate where I want my designs, but If I mess up I'll have botched my entire project! Then I realized there was a product called a "marking pen" that is used in quilting and sewing to mark fabric. The ink tends to disappear if you blot it with a damp towel, but I I am unsure how well this will work on an amigurumi (especially acrylic yarn). Does anyone have experience using marking pens, and can you suggest a specific brand to try? Also are there any pens that would be suitable to use on darker material? Thanks!!
