    I agree with this.

    I have used all three, parchment paper, 2 freezer paper put together and the backside of the fusible paper. Oh I do have a Teflon sheet but it keeps hiding on me when I need/want it.

    I've used everything --and after you use what's on hand. Do yourself a favor and get one of the teflon oven liners found at Grocery Outlet here --- for less than $5 you have the same thing as the over $12 sheet sold for fusible applique. Same size etc.

    I suggest buying a cheap iron for this type of thing. Someone suggested that to me, and if I really mess it up I can buy another. There are some great tips here!

    Go to the grocery store and look for parchment baking paper. I use it for transfers, fusing, etc. Great stuff!

    How about non-stick (release) Renold's Wrap Aluminum Foil? I used this carelessly once when baking cookies and they slid off onto the floor when I took them out of the oven. This stuff may work.

    I've never had a problem using wax paper.

    When you get a chance I would buy a teflon sheet as you can see where you are placing the pieces. I wouldn't be without. It is a must have at my home.

    Same thing happened to me when I baked cookies using the non stick foil. This is one product that works! I put it in the bottom of all my baking pans and it's perfect to put in the bottom of a skillet or griddle when cooking pancakes.
    Got fabric?

    I use parchment paper, sometimes by the roll for my huge appliques. It can be used several times before it needs to be replaced with a clean piece.

    I've used the 'release' wrap, it worked great!
