    Have you ever used the quilt basting spray for laying out clothing patterns?

    Isn't the pattern paper a little thin for that?

    OMG!! I hate that stuff... I bought a can of temp basteing spray and that is the darnest stuff to get off.... I use tweezers to hold small items wheile I spray,, and I have usd acetone, alchol, goo gone, WD 40 and LOTS of elbow grease....
    I freq will trace a pattern onto freezer paper and them iron it on to the fabric.... works great once..... after than I"m back to pinning.. but I usually dont make too many clothes these days.

    I much prefer to trace the pattern on to freezer paper, then iron the freezer paper on to the fabric. I'm too lazy to pin! :)
