No, I am not embarking on an applique project, but that is indeed what I originally purchased this roll of freezer paper for. I can't remember where I got this tip, as it has been some time since I read about it, but it was in the post of a fellow blogger. It is such a wonderful idea I have to share it with you all. Let's give a moment of thanks to the blogger who first put the tip out there, whoever you are. Merci beaucoup.
So here is what I am going to do: I am going to use this freezer paper to clean all the little strings and hairs and fabric bits off my design wall! Just how will I do that, you ask?
Pin the freezer paper (just to hold it down) and run your hot iron all over it. Shiny side down. Dull side to the outside where you place the iron. You only need to pin it the first time, after you iron it the paper will lie flat. When you peel back the paper after ironing, all the little thread bits will have stuck to the shiny side of the freezer paper!
How about that???? You can reuse each piece of freezer paper and just reposition it on the new area you are cleaning. I used three good sized pieces for my entire design wall, and repositioned them three or four times until they were so full of threads they weren't working so well any more.
It really works great. Now my design wall looks like it did on its first day, before I got threads stuck all over it. I really do love this.
