I do a lot of pattern tracing and last night had a "duh" moment. To protect my table/cutting mat from bleed through permanent marker, I put down several of the kitchen garbage bags I buy at Costco. Then the pattern, then my tracing paper (in my case soil separator from Lowes).

The bags are white. They cover the surface and provide a great background for the patterns.

I use thick white foam board on my table. I than use the flat thum tacks to hold burda sheets and tracing paper in place while tracing.
