I am sorry for the double summit. I was having touch screen issues. (After I cleaned the screen no more issues, imagine that...)

Hey, guys! I don't know if this is the place to ask my question, but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm currently working on a scarf and I want to embroider something on it. I'm trying to figure out how to mark the design on the scarf. Fabric markers didn't work so well, and I've already tried an inking pen, which worked, but the lines are super messy and not as thin as I need them to be. Anyone have any suggestions or tips? I really want this to work out! I'll use felt cut outs as a last resort. I wanted the emblem to last long.
