    I get a lot of the basic type patterns with the various sizes so instead of cutting one size and not being able to use it as well for another size, I iron a piece, cut out to the largest size, onto freezer paper. it doesn’t stick but it stays on the paper till you take it off – copy the pattern on the paper, trim the piece to the next size I need and do it again. The patterns last forever with the heavy paper and I get a lot of sizes with one pattern. Just make sure you label pattern # and size on the pieces. I store them in large manila envelopes that I recycle from the mail and just cut out the front of the pattern envelope and tape it to the front.

    Even with my sound turned up, I have a hard time hearing the speaker, can it be turned up? I also use a heavier paper for tracing, but will try the iron on interfacing, since my animals like to walk, drool, and scratch, since I Iike to sit on the rug to lay out my patterns.
