Dots, Crosses & its uses ! ...

Once again I'm using my 'DOT & CROSS' paper (above) - traditionally used by dressmakers to make patterns. Marked with small dots & crosses (every 2.5cm/1") that are used for making straight lines, curves, angles etc., it's also ideal for making patterns for other crafts. I've also used it in the past for making shapes for interior painting (stencils etc) as well as cooking shapes (cakes especially!!) - it's so quick & easy to get the right shape drawn before transferring to either card or thin plastic.

I also use it under clear plastic (as well as fine interfacing) as a guide for tracing other shapes - it saves getting rulers & straight edges out!!
