This stuff has 3 things going for it:
1) it's sticky
3) it dries clear--if you don't want to wash it out
Oh yeah, works like a charm! All you need is a little dab about every 5 zigs and one on each end!
It's also good for holding things that need to get pinned to the seam allowance--you know, purse handles, button loops, ribbons, etc
Just add a little dab to the seam allowance, add your whatever, and then you don't have to worry about it shifting out of place when you stitch your seam. NOTE: it will sometimes get a little gummy on your needle if you go too far and glue into the seam line, but it rubs off the needle very easily.
Once I found out how slick this works--I found myself using it all the time!
Zippers!! Oh, it's a zipper layers dream. Oh yeah, I get excited just thinking about it ;OD
Layers that need to stay in place until stitched.
Of course, laces and ribbons.
Even an unruly button or two has gotten the glue treatment.
OK--that's it for today. I hope you will add this to your table, if you don't have it already.
If you have a helpful hint or tip to share, please add them here and we will share them next Tuesday (or Wednesday! lol).
***Joey from JoeysDreamGarden shared last week that running the Freezer Paper through the printer didn't work so well, it "gunked up" her printer--so make sure you do a trial run before trying it on your printer Thanks Joey!
***Teresa from Cedar Junction
shared that she likes to iron the FP to tissue paper and run that through her printer to transfers images to tissue to use in her lovely altered art! Thanks Teresa!
***Lucy from Sweet Repeats shared that she used it as a work station protection. I actually do that too--but didn't think to add it to the tips! You are so right Lucy--it's fabulous for painting and gluing, your project doesn't stick to it, and you can then just toss it out when you are done! Thank you!!
Have a great day :o)
