Pattern Paper and Pattern Weights
While at Staples buying boxes (oh, the joys of moving!) I came upon a roll of “art” or “banner” paper…it’s 24″ wide by 30 feet long. And I thought, what great paper that would make for patterns! It’s white, so with good lighting you can see through it enough to trace an existing pattern and it’s much heavier (and and less prone to shredding by cat claws!) than tissue paper. And, to top it all off, only about $2 for the roll! Woo! You can’t get much better than that.
And, unable to find my pattern weights to cut out a pattern tonight, I ended up using those small round cans that cat food and tuna fish come in…they work great, except now kitty thinks she is going to be fed!
