I use the real thin kind, it has an iron on backing. It's made by Phelon.

Love my Hobbs 80/20 fusible quilt batt for placemats and lots of little projects.

What I use is the rolls of 'Season's Cover' by the Putnam Company (and Made in the USA!)sold at Hobby Lobby stores in the Christmas section. It is probably used for snow decorating crafts. I wait until their clearance sales and I have loaded up on the 36" x 7 ft rolls for $.99 each. Comes in small rolls and I keep it stored in the original plastic bag. Can easily 'stuff' the 16" rolls in small spaces in my storage closet. This washes up very nicely. I started using it several years ago only because I had some on hand from my Christmas Village display and needed something in a hurry for place mat gifts. I like the price and the convenience of storage. I also use this for wall hangings. Walmart sells something similar in their fabric dept.

We use Insul-brite insulated batting -- protects the table from heat. Use the shiny side up, away from the table.

Me too. If you're making a table topper that will have hot things set on it you can even use 2 layers of W&N and it will protect your table.
