    About a year ago I made some fabric bowls using Timtex two-sided fusible interfacing for stability. I have a lot of Timtex left over and now I want to make more bowls and I don't have any directions for using the Timtex. I have to fuse it to a 4"square of material and then fuse that to another fabric piece but I don't remember how to keep the sticky side from sticking to the ironing surface (since it has two sticky sides). There is a clear plastic sheet that is rolled in with the Timtex. Can anyone help me? Thanks

    Sorry I haven't tried the bowls so can't help with that but you might try freezer paper or wax paper anything to go between the iron and the timtex

    Thanks for the help. I went there but they use only one sided fusible. Maybe I should switch to one sided. Thanks!

    Sounds like a plan - if I can't figure out anything else I might try that. Thanks a lot for your help.

    since it is such a small piece can't you put the other fabric on the other side before you iron it? Like a sandwich?

    When you make these bowls you need to fuse one base on one side of the large piece and theother base on the other side - so I don't think that would work - thanks for your help.
