    The cheap scribble tablet paper goes through my printer just fine. I just need to cut it down a little to fit.

    Goes through my printer just fine also. I wouldn't want to hand draw...too time consuming!

    I have learned both methods of paper piecing and when I don't want to sew on the paper I use parchment paper as it sticks to the material but can re-used many times. The trick is when you fold the paper back to line up the next piece of material sew right along the fold line not through the paper.

    Thank you all for the input. I've been using regular printer paper in a laser printer, but was afraid that I was doing something wrong. Guess not. The lightest weight paper I can find works well for me, and seems to come off just fine.

    I just took a class and the teacher was using the Carol Doak paper which is the same as regular newsprint.

    When I got home, I tried the template with tracing paper and it worked well because I can see the lines from the back side. Now the tracing paper most likely won't make it through the printer but I like drafting the pattern myself.

    you can get newpaper paper at stores like staples you have to cut it to size but with rotary cutter and ruler that is not a issue. It is resasonable priced.
