Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric and I found it at my local Joann's. It writes a really smooth line, similar to a ball point pen. I went with the Pentel because another blogger did a wash test with a variety and this pen came out as #1.
If you would like to make your own, here's a quick tutorial. Click on any of the photos to see it larger for more details.
To make a table runner measuring roughly 14" x 64" you will need:
- 1 charm pack
- 1 yard backing
- 18" x 68" batting
- 1/2 yard binding
- Permanent fabric pen
Lay out all of your charm squares into a 14 x 3 grid and sew together. I pieced them into rows and then sewed the 3 rows together.
For the backing, cut two 18" wide pieces and then sew together to create one long piece at 18" wide. Trim the excess to the same size as your batting. Quilt as desired. I simply stitched in the ditch so that quilting wouldn't interfere with the dates, as I'm sure more will added in the future.
