    This is what I do. If I want a pattern to cut out of fabric I draw it on freezer paper. Then you iron it to the fabric and it adheres. Makes it easy to cut out without pinning. Then you just pull it off. It can be used over again quite a few times before it will no longer stick. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
