I have to also give credit to my super advanced sewing machine which comes with a supervisory attachment.
This attachment "helps" to take the foundation paper off as you sew.
If you can't afford such a special sewing machine with supervisory capabilities, you can strip the paper off by hand. I don't make a smaller stitch because I often make mistakes that need a seam ripper. I find that even a regular stitch lets me pull off the paper easily. But yes, its strip by strip. This activity is best accomplished with the help of a kitten.
Meanwhile, Buddy is helping me pick fabrics for the sheep tutorial that I'm going to be providing soon.
