Featured in the PR book!
I was using a fleece-backed microsuede and separated the layers so I could use the microsuede as binding. There was still some adhesive on the microsuede so it started gumming up my presser foot. I put waxed paper strips under the foot. It helped slide the fabric under the foot and it didn't stick to the adhesive like regular tissue paper would. Tearing it off was easy.
