I was tracing a Burda pattern and I kept losing track of what line I was tracing so I had the idea of sticking a few Post it's around the lines I was going to trace. I stuck the Post-its directly on the pattern sheet and then placed the tracing material on top. It was so easy to keep track of what line I was tracing and since Post-its are not that sticky they do not ruin the pattern sheets! I hope this is a new tip because I have not seen it anywhere else.

This is a really good idea, especially since Burda has decided to cram its patterns onto fewer sheets. With this tip, I may even be able to drink and trace!

Well, this will just drive my sick love of post-its even worse, because I also <3 burda, and will need to go and buy more post-its much to my DHs dismay. Great tip!

Great idea! I haven't seen it anywhere else. I am continually looking for better ways to work with the Burda patterns so any additional tips help.
