Parchment Paper???

I suspect the parchment paper we are talking about here, for kitchen and appliqué uses, is quite different from both traditional parchment paper and vellum. Kitchen parchment paper is a new development as I believe it is treated with silicone. It is the silicone that allows cookies and adhesives to not adhere. Not sure this kind of parchment paper would work for Pergamano.

Have fought for years to get consistent small bows! Thank you so much. As for Pergamano, that is gorgeous, good thing I know my eyes won't handle that or I'd be trying it too.

I put the placement guide under the parchment paper and assemble the pieces. When done it can be peeled off and put right onto the background and fused in place.

....... definitely a reason to buy the sheets!
It's so good that you have that option available to you.

If you've never heard of Pergamano here's a link

well you are in for a treat when baking with parchment paper. No more burned cookies! line a cake, bread, or brownie pan and up the edges and you can lift out your baked goods by pulling on the paper. I holds up to about 500 degrees F.

Now I went to your pergamano link and saw beautiful items but could not find any tutorials on how to do it.

Mindless: Thanks for the tutorial links!

Applique: Did you use Freezer Paper for your rooster, or parchment paper? (freezer paper has a silicone side that sticks to fabric when ironed, but freezer paper is just paper that withstands high heat?) either way, your rooster technique, and rooster, is fabulous! thanks for sharing.

Freezer paper has a plastic layer and is good for applique. You can iron it to the back of your fabric and it will stick temporarily. You can reuse it several times. Parchment paper is non stick and is good to build your applique projects on as for the rooster. After it is ironed you can peel it off easily and fuse it to your background. It is also an excellent pressting sheet to keep the fusible off your iron. I like it better then the pressing sheet I bought.
