    I just use the regular photocopy paper also and it works like a charm for me - but I agree, smaller stitches may it must easier...

    I use regular copy paper, the cheaper, the better!

    I use it when I don't have ink on my printer.

    I've used this method suggested by Maride and it's great! The best part is NO tearing out bits of paper when you finish. I highly recommend giving it a try.

    I've been sewing all day and I just checked the board and I'm shocked to see how many different responses I got and I loved them all, I will check them all out and Im so happy to see that you can use different and much less expensive paper.

    Thank You to all that answered.

    I use examination table paper. You can get a roll-which lasts forever-at any medical supply store or online. It's thicker than tissue paper but easy to see through. It comes off very easily. I got the kind that has a crepe (?) paper finish so it doesn't slide around. Very easy to trace patterns on but you can't put it through your printer or copier so making lots and lots of copies would be a problem. I'm terrible at pp so only make 4 or 5 blocks at a time and then get frustrated. Good luck!

    I use regular three hole paper too, its not given me a problem and I am a beginner. But word of warning, always make sure of size. I got the smaller size and it wouldn't go thru my printer right, thank goodness I didn't buy a bunch of it. Make sure its 8 1/2x11. Unless of course it doesn't bother your printer. Mine must be a little sensitive. It would be ok one page at a time but wouldn't print a bunch of them.

    Hope this helps some of you, I wait till I can get it on sale and get a lot of it.

    I usually use regular printer paper because that's all I can find at the time. If it's really stubborn to remove, I dampen the seamline with a little water on a cotton swab - it weakens the paper just enough to remove without leaving the bitty bits in the seam.

    I use the same paper I use in my printer, and it works great.
