I am now very spoiled by the huge sheets I buy at Greenberg & Hammer (in NYC, and I don't know what it would be like to have it sent), but before I used it I bought Saral transfer paper, at art-supply stores. You can get it on rolls, or you can buy a sample envelope with five different colors, including white. Good stuff-- Google it if interested!

Yeah, most of the tracing paper these days is awful. But what kind of tracing wheel are you using? The smooth ones don't work at all, from what I can tell. The edge needs to be bumpy/serrated:

The tracing paper you suggest, does it come out of your fabric. I am having an awful time with dritz tracing paper and it not washing out of my fabric...It is really depressing to have a white jecket almost finished only to find that the marks on the inside bleed thru to the outside and I can't remove them...any suggestions?

Check out this notion review by TJSews. I'm going to look for this and give it a try. I don't like the Dritz brand either.

THe color is so light i cant see it ever, I never sew with White fabric. So as far as it not coming out I am not sure cuz I cant even see the color.

this tracer looks better than a wheel. I also get wobbly lines with the dritz tracing tool.

Hey Rock,

I don't know that paper, but if you're going to order from Amazon, I'd recommend that instead of buying those two Clover tracing wheels, get the Clover double-wheel tracing wheel.

You can take out one of the wheels and use it to trace normally, but if you ever want to trace a cutting line AND a seam line at the same time, this is one great tool to have. You can move the two wheels around and get a variety of distances between them.

(p.s., they don't have 3-fer deals. they just add the prices up and you think you're getting a bargain price!)
