Featured in the PR book!
When cutting a fabric that is slippery or unstable, I place sheets of cheap tissue paper (gift wrapping kind) on the table and put my fabric on top of it. I pin the pattern with both the fabric and the tissue underneath so I can cut the tissue as well as the fabric. This way, the fabric don't move much while cutting.

While I haven't tried gift wrapping paper yet, I recently made a blouse out of a very slippery fabric. I tried tissue paper (Charmin kind) and I tried pattern tissue. Both kept the fabric from slipping, but neither tore away cleanly. What did tear away very nicely was plain old newspaper. Worked very well. Just be careful when working with a light fabric. Try a piece on a scrap before using to make sure that print won't come off.
