This is probably not going to be a widely usable tip for most, but if you find yourself in similar circumstance, it may be helpful. First I want to say, I do not like Swedish tracing paper for tracing patterns. I find it "buckles" too much. But, I had bought quite a few rolls which I did not want to just throw away. On my recent project I find that it works wonderful as a "drop" cloth to to drape over my work table, even without clearing the table completely off first, to protect things when using spray adhesive. I use a very large piece which covers everything at once. Also, it works to sandwich pattern pieces for ironing fusing interfacing, protecting both the ironing board and the iron from gumming up. And it can be reused over and over again for these purposes. I have found too, that is tears relatively easily and so could probably be used as a quite stiff stabilzer.

Thank you! I don't like Swedish tracing paper for patterns, either, yet I seem to have an awful lot of it. These are good ideas.
