I make my patterns from chipboard, which is the very thin cardboard they put on the back of a tablet of paper. This is much easier, and more accurate, to draw around. Look at this thread if you want to see how I do my patterning: Truck Seat Upholstery Tutorial
The picture shows some of the patterns that I have made over the years. I just threw away a lot of my old patterns, and the load weighed over 500 lbs.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
