Copying the small pattern pieces on the desk top copier is a great idea. There is Foundation Paper used paper piecing quilts blocks that is thinner than regular printing paper. If you want the advantage of non-stiff copied pieces, this may be the way to go. It is available in many sewing catalogs, quilting stores & Joann's stores, in the quilting section. You can packs of 30 to 100. They feed very nicely through my printer, & I have copied a lot of paper piece foundation s.
