    Well, I'm on my second load of laundry after spending a couple of hours snipping off the paper edges! My hand is killing me. Leaving them out overnight to get a full dose of fresh air!

    I would have done the same thing! When we lived in the city, my hubby and I would put things on the curb for "pick up day" - and we would watch - usually within 30 minutes the item was picked-up and not by the city :D

Also, I try to remove the paper backing by just peeling it off, but if I get one that's hard to remove, I just microwave it for JUST A FEW SECONDS. Usually comes right off.
    Great tips. I have a few samples with paper on the back. I'll have to try the microwave tip.

    A friend's son has an upholstery business and she has given me several of these books. I have made LOTS of the little Snappy purses and have them on hand to take as little gifts - everyone just loves them. The pieces are perfect sizes - I use one fabric and use the coodinsting piece for the lining and top that the ruler goes thru - then make another one using the reverse fabrics.

    Enjoy - seems like we enjoy those freebies more than fabrics that we pay high prices for - LOL.
