    I made a muslin pattern for aprons and I did use a little 505 spray to help spread out the pieces nice and neat.

    I wouldn't recommend it ~ but I do iron my pattern pieces to make them flatter, and if I have to do alterations, I use the pattern copying stuff in the interfacing section... that sticks to the fabric by itself really well, no mess, way less pins too

    That's what I use.

    I iron fusible interfacing to all my tissue patterns. They don't rip and much easier to work with and they last forever.

    The Dritz spray lists that as one of the things you can do with it. I did use it once when cutting out a teddy bear of the fur type fabric. It was my first experience with spray. I found that if I sprayed just a dot on the fabric, then put the pattern down it was ok. No problem peeling the pattern piece off after. My hands were quite sticky though. I must have used the rest on quilts and have not bought the Dritz again. I usually get the June Tailor.

    I make patterns out of newspaper paper still on the roll not printed, they give the stuff away by the roll at our local newspaper. Anyway I spray basting spray right on the paper and it works great! No pinning required.

    This reply is for blutedie--get a glue stick--works much better for small pieces and I got several in the scrapbook section of WalMart for $1 each. Called the company (Scotch) and was told that all their glue sticks were water soluable. Didn't say on the package.

    I have used spray when making satin, silk, or velvet evening gowns. I spray a very lightly on the back or the fabric, then place the pattern on the back side of the fabric. I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS test on a scrap of fabric first to make sure it does not stain.
    I don't remember which spray I have used. It has been at more than 10 years since I have made an evening gown, so I don't remember much about how I did it. Just a tiny bit of spray and then lightly smoothed the pattern onto the back of the fabric. I think I used a spray that went away in the air, so it wasn't sticky. However, all the gowns were lined.
