The tracing paper I used years ago would last me forever. I bought some blue at Joann Fabrics the other day and you remember the old carbon paper we uses to use in making copies of a letter you typed? Well, this stuff was like that. It got all over my hands and fabric. It was terrible! I can't seem to find the good stuff anymore that washes out.

Try Nancy's Notions. Or if you have a Hobby Lobby near you, give them a try. Although Joann's should of had other tracing paper besides that. But your right, its certainly is NOT what it used to be.

Another vote for Saral although even that will rub off on your hands a bit.
If you have an AC Moore near you they sell it on a roll like foil, color grey only, that's a much better buy than the pack at JA's.
Around $15 but with a coupon it's reasonable and will last a very long time! This color tends to not be as smeary as some of the other colors.
I'd post a link but for some reason the web site is not working right for me.
