Default Teflon Baking Sheet for a Slider Tip

I wasn't sure where to put this, but I guess it's about tricking out your sewing space, so I chose here. If you like FMQ and use a slider… this is a cheaper way to get a huge slider I have always had to tape down my supreme slider anyways… so no biggie there. This is WAYYYY bigger and cost about $8.00 and free shipping on Amazon. I just cut a small hole in the right spot for my needle area.

I have the larger supreme slider but I always have to tape it down and it was very expensive. I'm moving in a few weeks and I think when I do my new sewing room setup that I'll give the teflon sheets a try.

Did you order the Eksel BBQ Grill mats?? It appears to be the closest to your picture.

I originally got mine at the Dollar Store. Got the bright idea to spray the edges with tacky craft glue and stuck it down. Worked really good for several months, maybe a year or more. Then I needed to remove it and boy was that a mess. Worked hours to remove the sticky residue. lol Now I bought one at the kitchen supply outlet and it's large enough to cut in half so I can use on both machines. These work really well but I've found that waxing the bed of my machines with car wax works nearly as good for fmq.

I have a question...did the sheet "fray" with rough edges where you cut it, and ok, I guess I should say 2 questions, what did you cut it with? This is such a neat idea.Thanks for sharing.
