Wax Tracing Paper link
Wax Tracing Paper! Now wait, before you get all unimpressed let me just tell you it's not your "run of the mill" tracing paper. Most people use the tiny Dritz strips they get at their local fabric store. No this is MUCH different. These sheets first of all are HUGE---26X39. And it works EXCEPTIONALLY well. The wax markings are amazing (thicker and not chalky since they're really wax) and don't leave residues all over your fabric. T
The Light blue is $17 and it's really popular! It and White are the 2 colors I worked with and pretty much great to have since you can use the blue wax paper on white and other light colors and use the white on darker colors. You pretty much have all bases covered. They also last a LONGGGGGG time. I worked with Mrs. Pat on the project and she'd had hers for a few years. It was evident they were well used since you could see all the markings on them but they still worked like a charm. Again I loved working with them and am impressed with the results so they're absolutely a worthy investment. They're excellent when doing your usual markings (darts, pleats, etc) but they're great as a whole when working with sheers. You can trace out full pattern pieces and prevent shifting. I'm going to get several sheets and come back in the near future to demo how great they are to use. Have you tried these sheets? Do you use wax tracing paper in your sewing projects?
