    I read somewhere that you can use the dryer sheets (after they are used) as a backing to crazy quilt or reinforce. Would it be like interfacing? It kind of looks like it but is it made from the same stuff?
    Stuff is a technical term.
    :lol:

    I've used it... make sure you get unsented! Or use ones that have already been through the dryer... otherwise the "fresh" smell can knock you over!

    When I first began doing appique, I used (used) dryer sheets to make my pieces. You just sew the dryer sheet to the right side of the fabric, make a slit in the dryer sheet, turn, press, and voila! You're edges are all turned under for you. :)
