    You can buy it here from mixed media and haberdashery suppliers. It's basically plastic coated, which allows it to be very easily fused to materials to stop them from changing shape, and can be peeled off at the end. It's a useful product.

        You can get it in Hobbycraft, but I've never seen it round here in smaller haberdashery shops, or even in Abakhan. It's just called Freezer Paper; Reynold's is the brand I've seen in Hobbycraft.

              No it's nothing like double-sided tape.

              Think of a kitchen roll, foil or greaseproof, around that size.

              When you unroll and cut off a piece, it is quite clearly paper, albeit white shiny paper, not greyish tracing paper like greaseproof.

              One side of the paper is a very fine layer of plastic. If you cut out say, a heart shape, from the freezer paper then iron it gently, plastic side down, onto a piece of fabric, it sticks to the fabric. You could cut out a dozen hearts from freezer paper and iron them to your fabric.

              Now the magic. You can cut out those hearts - no need for 505 temporary adhesive, pins, masking tape, erasable fabric markers, tailors chalk or any of that time consuming gubbins. just cut around the paper.

              Then you can peel off the paper hearts and use them again in the same way several times!

              It enables you to make the best use of your fabric possible and is useful in several other ways too.

              In the US it is low cost and found in supermarkets; here it costs several pounds per roll and is found in quilting suppliers, good craft shops, some art shops and some haberdashers.

                  ... indeed, and they are also party to a dispute about massive amounts of unpaid tax ...
