I finally figured out a way to trace Burda World of Fashion magazine patterns that works for me.

I pin my Utrecht vellum tracing paper to the pattern I want to trace. I make all of my internal markings (grainlines, ease markings, pocket placement, etc.) and then I ink my Clover double tracing wheel (set at 3/4") with water-based paper crafting ink (I used a Stampin' Up ink pad. You can find stamping/paper crafting ink at Michael's, A.C. Moore, etc.). I outline my chosen pattern with the inked wheel, and in doing so, I mark the cutting line as well as the seam line.

Krystal, thank you for sharing this brilliant tip !!! I just tried it with my blunt Clover, double tracing wheel, using a good quality roll-on office ink on a regular stamp pad. I am in Australia, I buy generic brand, unwaxed lunch wrapping paper, commonly called "greaseproof paper" = about $2 for 30 metres. I trace all my patterns on this unwaxed paper and once the ink dried, there were no smudges.

Yes, please tell us, I was wondering where to get this tracing paper also. And great tip. I've seen the double wheels, but never thought of this technique. Very clever

I've been trying to figure out how to trace patterns so that I can keep all of the sizes and styles for future use. This is a great idea! Where do you find the vellum tracing paper? This is the one thing I haven't been able to find at my local sewing store.

This is excellent! I just received my double wheel tracing thing in the mail yesterday. I was thinking about how to get the pattern sheet from the Marfy catalog traced out, and now I don't have to do the trial and error. I don't think I'd ever have thought of using a stamp pad to ink the wheel! I did not even know there was a water-based ink pad available. Thank you!

Nice! I'll track down a Clover double tracing wheel and give this a try. Lots of BWOF patterns to practice on. Thanks for sharing.

I am new to the BWOFM patterns and was trying to find tracing paper to copy the pattern. Your method is perfect. I already ordered my Clover DTW online tonight! Thanks!

@ sewbehind, I used one of my extra Stampin' Up ink pads. You can find stamping ink at Michael's or A. C. Moore, or any craft supply store.

Very handy idea!

I also use this method. I save my sort of dried up ink pads that way there isn't too much ink, but enough to see it. When it stops making marks just roll it across the ink pad again. Thanks for publishing this idea!

Thanks Krystal, this is such a great idea I will be sure to use this tip as I have an over abundance of inks.

How clever of you! Where do you find this water soluble paper crafting ink? Is it for scrapbooking? I'm not a scrapbooker, so don't know. I will definitely use this. Thanks.
