I thought I might like to share my tip on tracing your pattern pieces onto minky or polar fleece.
I found a great pen in silver and gold from the newsagents called Xsc Bright 100 Greetings card pen. It is a metallic marker that has a fat nib that I use to mark my pieces to cut out with. You only have to very lightly trace around your pattern pieces with it, no dragging on the fabric to leave a mark. When I have two pattern pieces that go together by reversing them, ears for instance, place a dot on the centre of one pattern piece to know which go together in pairs.
