Default Parchment Paper and Sew-in Nonwoven Fusible Interfacing

They looked feel a lot alike on my cutting table.

They are not interchangeable.

I'm totally missing something on that heading and responses.Can't make hide nor hair of it...meaning I'm not getting enough on my page to understand what this one is all about.

I took parchment paper - that I use to line my baking pans with (I have been making a lot of zucchini bread this summer) - down to my cutting table downstairs to trim it to fit my smaller loaf pans. I get more accurate, better fitting pieces when I cut them using an acrylic ruler and rotary cutter instead of just hacking away at the paper with a scissors.

I also had some pellon non-fusible, non-woven interfacing on the table at the time. I just noticed that the color, width, and texture of the two materials seemed somewhat similar.

This was just an observation that I could easily see myself grabbing the wrong stuff i If I was not paying close attention - or distracted - and these items were located close to each other on the table. Which they were.

I am still hopeful that I would notice the difference before actually using either product incorrectly.

By the way, wax paper and parchment paper are not interchangeable, either.

Before I learned to line the baking pans with parchment paper, even though I greased the pans, the loaves did not come out "cleanly". When I bake the zucchini bread using the pans lined with parchment paper, almost all the crust stays on the zucchini bread instead of sticking to the pan.

I do grease the pans with Crisco before lining them with the parchment paper. The reason I do is so that the parchment paper will "stay put" better. And so that the bread will not stick to the corners of the pan.

This was just a post trying to be entertaining.

But - a reminder to pay attention to what one is doing. I was looking for some hydrocortisone cream - and without my glasses on - I am not able to read the labels if the print is small - so just because a container "looks and feels right" for what you think it should be holding - make sure that it is actually what you really want to use/take.

I am beginning to see/understand why people can take the wrong medication. Especially if their vision is staring to fail - and they don't bother to put their glasses on (if glasses still help) - or they are too bleary-eyed to see - or for whatever reason.

Be safe.

Thanks for the explanation - I thought I might have missed something somewhere. Your fusible must be a heavy one if it looks like parchment paper. My fusible is very light so it would look different. And using a rotary cutter, mat and ruler surest for cutting other. Way back when my son (who is 40) was in elementary school I used an old blade to cut crepe paper for a piņata. Worked very well.

This is a very good observation. And a very good warning.

I also like using parchment paper in the kitchen. But also, on occasion, in the sewing room as a press cloth when I can't find the one I was just using for applique....
Who knows what may end up in my kitchen accidentally.

It's not supposed to be funny, maybe, but it still made me laugh. I have cataracts, and so many things could go so wrong, so easily. It would be very wise for me to pay closer attention. Crisco and cortisone cream....hmmmm

Yep had a mix-up just the other day--shampooed my hair with conditioner. The containers are the same and who wears their glasses in the shower??

I am finding that I pull out my magnifying 'credit card' more and more often. Over the counter medications are the worst! No wonder there are so many accidental overdoses and drug interactions.
