I appreciate this product was originally designed for wrapping food, but if you are a quilter/patchworker and most importantly a person who does appliqué this is a total must have product!!! You draw your design on the matt surface and iron on your design to your fabric shiny side down. This acts as a temporary adhesive which doesn't affect your fabric in anyway. Plus you can reuse the same template several times if you are gentle while removing it. When this amazing project hit the quilting world in the U.K. it was over £20 a box, now the price is so much cheaper and affordable. If you haven't tried using this product for template making for appliqué now is an excellent time due to the incredible price.
As with almost everyone else I bought this for craft work, and it's absolutely ideal. For the uninitiated, it is as transparent as greaseproof paper, but with a thin plastic layer on one side only. Draw your design on the opposite side, cut it out, then iron the resultant stencil onto a flat t-shirt with a hot iron for about 10-15 seconds.
You will then find the paper is completely (but temporarily) ironed on, and you can paint the design on with acrylic paints, safely without going over the lines. Add as many coats as you require, then when dry simply peel the paper off. You can still iron over the stencil to fix each coat of paint without damaging the paper at all. No residue on the fabric whatsoever, since all it does is soften the plastic coating, not melt it. So long as you don't tear the paper, you can re-use the stencil as many times as you want.
This is a fantastic product and worth every penny. Oh and you can apparently wrap food for the freezer with it too....
I initially bought this freezer paper to use for tracing sewing patterns. It's a little thick and not very see through for that purpose really and I did struggle which is a shame because this paper is a lot harder wearing then greaseproof. I have used it for its original purpose as freezer paper and it's Great, so much better than what I was doing before so money not wasted. And as for tracing patterns, I've gone back to using greaseproof paper!
I use this for crafting, primarily to trace patterns onto, which I then iron onto the fabric. The plastic coating on the paper makes it stick to the fabric but when I want to remove it, it comes off very easily and perfectly cleanly. I have bought several rolls of this and find it so useful. I wouldn't be without it now.
I have been using Reynolds freezer paper for years to do hand applique. This last order had a new packaging - not as shown and hardly sticks at all to my (pre-washed) fabric. The reverse side is not as shiny as my previous rolls and before you have finished cutting around the shapes, the freezer paper has become 'un stuck'. I will be looking around for an alternative now.
I have never used freezer paper for applique work before but I am busy making a quilt which has a lots of applique and decided to try. I don't know why it has taken me so long. It is perfect - and you can iron it on more than once. I am now a convert.
