Teflon Pressing Sheets are a thin layer of fiberglass mesh that has been coated with High-Temp-Resistant Teflon. They offer a long lasting, easy to clean pressing surface for heat fusibles, meltable crafts, ironing bondable fabrics, appliqués & patches. They can be used to work with excess adhesives, protecting your iron and ironing board.
Here are a couple useful reasons for Teflon Pressing Sheets in your sewing arsenal
1. Each sheet can be used multiple times
One of the advantages of a Pressing sheet over parchment sheets or wax paper is that Pressing Sheets can be used over and over while parchment only lasts for one or two pressings. This sheet has been folded in half to press ‘Angelina Fibers’ into a flat piece to be used in machine embroidery.
2. Pressing sheets are see through
Transparent qualities allow you to see through the sheet while you’re working.
3. Keep your work area clean
A Pressing Sheet will keep fusible web residue and hot glues off your iron and work area. You can see how The Wonder Under (heat activated adhesive) peels right off the sheets after it cools.
Quick Tips: For long lasting optimal results, always roll the sheets or store them flat when you’re not using them. You can use a paper towel roll if your sheet didn’t include tube packaging.
Avoid cutting the factory sealed edges of the sheets as it could expose the inner mesh and snag your delicate fabrics.
Wouldn’t it be nice to never have to scrape gummy residue off your iron’s soleplate after an appliqué project?
