When copying my pattern onto the paper, I only make one copy on regular printer paper.  i then take the paper made for paper-piecing, staple it to the printed page and take it to my machine.  After unthreading the machine, I then sitch on the lines to make my pattern.  This may take a bit longer than just making printer copies, but it saves ink, AND having the little perforations in the paper make it much easier to tear away when the block is complete.   One word of caution:  if you do a lot of reverse sewing (taking out stiches that are not right) you may have your pattern torn away before you were ready.  Be sure to change your needle before sewing another quilt after you finish your paper piecing.

I use the needle from my last project to sew the tissue patern.  Then I replace it with the new needle for my new project.
