    I really recommend the Carol Doak's page her patterns look so wonderful and yet so easy to do following her and I like her tip of starting and finishing the stitching 1/4" beyond the lines, I use value copy paper 80gram and top tip reduce your stitch length to about half the your normal one as that makes the tearing out the paper easier.

    I just used the thinnest copie paper I could find in the house and ran it through my printer, printing directly from Marcia Kohn's website. Then I used smaller stitches and the paper pulled out easily.

    Okay... too early in the morning for me to be typing one handed with my dog in my lap. The website's edit feature isn't working either, I meant to say: "copier paper" and "Marcia Hohn's"

    Carol Doak is the way to go. I also use her paper to do it. Took a class with her to learn how and she is a lovely person. I have several of her books.

    I am going to run by a store today that may have it on the shelf - I will see cant wait to try something that isn't distorting the stitches!

    ok I made this but the foundation stuff I had wasn't paper it was this foundation stuff almost like interfacing - I also tried freezer paper and it didn't tear away very well - plus I did the paper piecing wrong thank goodness for the internet I found a tutorial online with a video I just had to search paper piecing :oops:
