    Ok, at the risk of sounding dumb and not really caring.. I am going to try to applique using the freezer paper method. What happens to the freezer paper once you sew it inside? (this is what the video on youtube shows?).. when you wash it does it stay the same? disolve? become a big lump? inquiring minds. I think it was the cuttingthreads applique lesson I watched. And having to go out and get freezer paper.. is it easy to figure out which is the "waxy" side? on the reynolds site it says plastic freezer paper.. is it plastic? or is that a whole different type of kitchen freezer paper than what they showed? I would rather figure this out now than AFTER I make something. Then it would be a DUMB should have thought of asking question. Thanks!

    If you are sewing on the paper, you need to remove it after you sew the seems. Just like regular paper piecing.

    The video shows: using it to cut your template. Then taking it and placing it on the back of your fabric, folding your fabric over the edge and pressing down onto the paper .. I didnt see how she was removing the paper if she did.

    Did you watch it all the way thru? They cut out the back and pull out the freezer paper at the end. I would take it off before I put it down and I don't usually cut out the back at the end, but many people do.

    Yes, it's quite apparent which side is waxy, and which isn't - very flat and not as shiny.

    After you've stitched the applique down, you would cut behind the applique, leaving what would equal a 1/4 "seam". Then you can get to the paper to remove it. You don't want to leave that paper inside of a quilt...it's not going to disintegrate.

    ok plan B, that is something that would probably not thrill me and if I snipped a stitch I would be really unthrilled. Everyone says not to use fusible on hand stitching as its too hard. Then how do you get that piece to stay in place flat while you stitch around it.. just incredibly slow stitching?
