I started out with a light-weight denim I had on hand, but switched to unbleached muslin. I use 4 layers of the muslin, only 2 layers of denim. I also use clear Contact paper over the top of the paper pattern. (In the US, that's the shelf paper that lifts off easily.) I search through the display, and can usually find a roll that is clear.

I notice that the book I have by Valerie Grimwood says to use calico as the background material but this would be difficult to find in our small town. Is there any other fabric that I can use in place of this?
