    I use one called the applique pressing sheet. I also think they have one called the goddess sheet. You can buy either online. Joanns you can buy a teflon pressing sheet

    I make my own that works great. I press two pieces of freezer paper wax sides together. I can't tell a difference from the expensive pressing sheets I've used. A guild member pressed freezer paper to thin white cotton and uses that for a pressing sheet. It's reversible for whatever she needs pressed, fusible to delicate applique.
    Got fabric?

    You may have been the one who mentioned this in a prior thread and now that is all I ever use. Thanks, it works great!

    I read somewhere about cutting up old sheets and using those for pressing sheets/cloths. Anyone agree?

    Hmm I've always used plain 100 % cotton muslin. Maybe I've missed something here. What are the advantages of thin pressing cloths? I'm always ready to learn something new.

    Iron on interfacing gunk will not stick to the parchment paper as it will to cloth. Keeps iron and ironing board gunk free. A sheet underneath and one on top shinny side up on bottom one and shinny side down on top one. Hope you get what I mean.

    My teflon applique pressing sheet was the biggest waste of money ever.

    Now I always use the release paper from Wonder Under. It lasts pretty well forever- can be used many many times.

    If you are looking for something to cover applique when pressing then applique pressing sheet (basically a plastic - like sheet) or parchment work great.

    If you are looking for a pressing cloth (that is a cloth that you use to cover a fabric that would be marked if hit by an iron -- like wool -- if or you need to hit something with steam, then a white dish towel works great, usually a bit damp.
