How do I keep the fabric from moving when I use templates?

Keep Sandpaper Handy

Place a piece of find sandpaper under your fabric when using a template and pencil to marking your stitching or cutting lines by hand. The fabric will stick to the sandpaper and lessen the chance of inaccuracy due to stretching.

Thats sounds like an awesome idea but I'm thinking when you go around your template its going to make it difficult to get a straight line..It would seem to me if would be bumpy..., but as far as holding it in place that would work great...
