Another Favorite: Rosin Paper
It's time for another favorite! This time I'm introducing you to rosin paper. This is the handiest of stuff to have around and it's soooo cheap! We buy a 36" x 140' roll for around $12 at the home stores. The first time I ever used it was when Brian and I were building a desk and we wanted the top to be curved instead of your typical rectangle. We used this for the pattern. We used it after that to cover a floor when we were remodeling and painting.
Since then, I've discovered how nice it is to have in the craft and sewing studio. I keep a roll of it behind my door so it's always handy. It's good for the obvious such as covering my craft table while painting. It's also great for designing patterns. Right now I'm making some Christmas stockings and aprons, and it's great for making the paper patterns.
