You can use freezer paper in so many ways in the sewing room. 1. For templates, that can iron on fabrics. 2. For applique (machine and hand)
For using as templates, you can trace your pattern piece on the freezer paper, cut it out, then iron the shiny side to the fabric and cut out. You can lift this to use several times for a wonderful template.
For freezer paper applique, you can cut out your shape on the reverse, then cut your fabric 1/4" larger. With the non-shiny side to the wrong side of fabric, fold the 1/4" to the shiny side, using the iron to hold the fabric to the freezer paper. After you do the entire piece, you can put the piece down on fabric and applique stitch around. Remove the paper afterward..
For Machine applique- simply use the freezer paper under the fabric to help the fabric stabilze- and slide under the foot of the machine.

I have used freezer paper for making patterns but I never thought about tracing a pattern and ironing it onto the fabric for cutting out. Your appliqué tip using freezer paper is insightful. Thanks for sharing

thanks, i've used the freezer paper applique, it really works, although I've had to make sure to keep the iron on long enough for the fabric to fuse. great tip!!

thnaks for the suggestions! Can you just get freezer paper at any grocery store, or is it more of a specialty product?

*kkkaty --- you should be able to find freezer paper in any grocery store, its usually sold in the same area as aluminum foil and plastic wrap.
