The Art of Living
The material is a lightweight mesh that has just enough adhesive on both sides to make it tacky, so that when you place it on top of paper or linen, it stays put. Since it stays in place, there is no need for tape or securing the paper, linen, or mesh.
Since the mesh has holes, it makes tracing a snap. You have excellent visibility so even the smallest of details are captured. This makes tracing go very quickly, which is something I like because I have to trace a lot of patterns.
Once your design is traced onto the mesh, you always have it for re-use. Simply fold up the mesh and tuck it away in a plastic bag for storage and next use.
The other very cool thing about the mesh is that those little extra pieces that are left over from cutting can be attached to other small pieces because it is self adhesive, so there is virtually no waste!! Just overlap the smaller pieces and they stick together.
And unlike red-dot that gets icky and fuzzy after tracing on it a few times, this stays intact and lasts forever because of its durability. Plus, it does not ruin your markers the way red dot does. And it's less expensive. More durable and less expensive--I will never go back to red-dot!
