Fabric Color Touch-Ups

A flaw in fabric can be noticeable and unsightly, particularly solids. This occurs from the manufacturing process or a safety pin causes a snag. There's a quick way to fix this problem.

Choose a permanent marker or fabric marker that matches the fabric and use a light touch, being careful to immediately cap the pen. Here I've used a fine line brown marker for touch up.

These markers can also be used to tint thread pop-ups if the bobbin thread is a light color. If you use a medium or dark shade of thread in the bobbin the pop-ups will show.
