Sewing patterns are often printed on flimsy tissue paper. That’s fine if you only plan to make the project once or twice, but for a pattern that you intend to use over and over, it’s a good idea to transfer the pattern to a more durable material. Lindsay from Lindsay Sews and Craft Buds likes to transfer her tissue patterns to freezer paper, and she shares a tutorial showing how she does it. In addition to being more durable than the tissue paper, freezer paper has the added advantage of being able to be temporarily fused down to the fabric you’re cutting. Get the how-to.
