|While attending a sewing class given by Linda of Linda's Sewing Center (Corvallis OR), I was fascinated to see that they had traced their patterns onto 2mil plastic, fondly known as Visqueen at our house. It stored nicely and unfolded without creases. I probably don't need to say that it is terrific to trace since it is clear! Sharpie permanent markers are perfect for this purpose. Linda said that they sell a roll of several yards of the Visqueen since it comes in rolls of many yards. So, if you have some leftover plastic from remodeling projects, here's a new use for it.
