Cereal Box Liners For Patterns

You can use cereal box liners for tracing patterns and cutting sewing patterns. When cereal box liners are empty, carefully pull them apart to flatten at the seams. If done slowly, they won't tear. Flatten with your hands and place on a hard surface. Place the pattern you need to copy under the cereal box liner and trace with a Sharpie pen. If you don't have a Sharpie marking pen, an ink pen will work, too. Since one side of the cereal box liner works better with an ink pen than the "wrong" side, you should test first to check which side works best with the ink pen.

If you are constructing a sewing pattern, cutting it out of the cereal box liner will last longer than tissue paper. It can be taped with Scotch tape if necessary. The pattern in the photo was traced from a coloring book.
