Chalk pencils are handy tools for drawing stitch lines, outlines and cut lines on fabric. These are nicer than your usual chalk pencils; they’re smooth and glide over fabric easily, not dry and crumbly. Marks wash away with water.
Each set comes with three pencils – white, pink and blue – so you can choose the colour that shows up best on any given mending or sewing project. (I recently used these during a mask-making frenzy to mark pleat folds and nose-wire sections; the multiple colour options came in handy for the large range of fabric colours I used.)
NOTE: For best results test pencils on an inconspicuous part of your garment first (e.g. an inside seam), as they can be difficult to remove from certain fabrics. Remove any marks before you iron, as heat could set them permanently.
Made in Japan and packaged with paper instructions in a plastic sleeve by the manufacturer.

This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
