The tracing paper I used years ago would last me forever. I bought some blue at Joann Fabrics the other day and you remember the old carbon paper we uses to use in making copies of a letter you typed? Well, this stuff was like that. It got all over my hands and fabric. It was terrible! I can't seem to find the good stuff anymore that washes out.

Try Nancy's Notions. Or if you have a Hobby Lobby near you, give them a try. Although Joann's should of had other tracing paper besides that. But your right, its certainly is NOT what it used to be.

Saral. I love it. You can buy a sampler pack at Joann's and so far all colors transfer well. I also have Clover “Chacopy” Tracing Paper but with bad results...

The stuff I bought at Joann's is blue like carbon paper and it's double sided and gets on your hands like crazy and all over your fabric. I hate it!

I use the Sarall tracing paper pak from Joann's too. I works great for me without being messy. I find it in the embroidery section of our store.

Another vote for Saral although even that will rub off on your hands a bit.

If you have an AC Moore near you they sell it on a roll like foil, color grey only, that's a much better buy than the pack at JA's.
Around $15 but with a coupon it's reasonable and will last a very long time! This color tends to not be as smeary as some of the other colors.

I'd post a link but for some reason the web site is not working right for me.
