Quick print for pickle



I saw this idea on whipup and thought it would be cool to try. Just one problem, what on earth (to use my daughters favourite phrase of the moment) is freezer paper??? From reading various accounts of what people have done, I understood it to be a sort of greaseproof paper with a wax coating on one side, Like wax paper I thought... so off I trotted to the Kitchens shop. I bought wax paper, but it does not seem to stick to the fabric (no matter which side I iron!).

Anyhow, it seems to have mostly worked, there are a few misty dotty bits but as they are round the antennae they look kind of magical I reckon. I am going to try this on a t-shirt for me next. If anyone can help me out with the whole freezer paper thing I would appreciate it, otherwise I am going to have to try to beg some at the next possible swap opportunity!!

Well your much closer than me to knowing how to print with freezer paper whatever that is. I've read about it on blogs, but I still don't understand how to do it!!!!!!!!!!

Our local quilting shop sells freezer paper. It really does make applique sooooooooo much easier!
