      I’ve used tissue paper (but I usually crumple it then flatten it so it’s not slippery).
      BUT if you’re sewing something that you may keep a long time (like a pretty handkie or christening gown), cheap paper will eventually oxidize and stain or weaken the fabric. So use proper stabilizers (or acid-free archival paper) for precious projects.
