Question What's it called?

It's a type of transfer paper you use on fabric. It has blue or red ink on one side, you put it under your fabric, then you use your little spiky pizza cutter looking thing on your fabric then you have marks on the back of your fabric.

You see I made the mistake of drawing up my pattern on the front of the fabric.
Or if anyone knows of a good way to get my pattern to the wrong side of my fabric that would be awesome.

usually it's just called wax-free tracing paper (papel de calco SIN CERA as it also says on the package). dritz has some and you can fins it at most craft stores.

TY I thought it had something to do with wax, but I guess it's just the opposite.

Some are made with wax, some arent. Either way, its pattern tracing paper.

I like the chalk ones as they rinse off easier. I think the wax ones are supposed to vanish with heat (though can leave oil residue, which doesnt matter in sewn areas). I dont know about the wax-free ones.
