Pattern tracing and upcycling

I have a new favorite and inexpensive way to trace and save patterns in all the sizes offered in a pattern. In the past I have used a large roll of butcher paper from Hobby Lobby, which I found a bit expensive. The other day I saw a roll of plain white wrapping paper in the Dollar Tree. I just tried it out and it works great!

The roll is only 3 yards long, but it is very wide. It should last a few months at least.

Also this morning I'm busy turning these thrift store clothes into cute new shorts and capris for The Lucky Rabbit. If you are in the Hattiesburg, MS area you won't want to miss the April Market the 4th-7th.
