Remember this? (Refresh your memory here.)
Well, a couple of people asked me to reveal the name of this product. So, in the interest of saving others some of the troubles I've had, I'll tell all. It was my previous favorite Wonder-Under by Pellon.
Now, I first encountered problems with this a couple of years ago. I did some searches on the internet and came across a bulletin board - hosted by Pellon, I think - where there was a lot of discussion about the release failing on Wonder-Under. A company representative explained what they thought was going on and said they hoped to have it fixed soon.
Since then I think I have tried every fusible product on the market! Not all created equal - I'm sure you all know that! I've been really happy with HTCW TransWeb, but lately I've not been able to get it locally. Bummer. I want something light, that doesn't gum up my sewing machine needle too much, and has a paper backing for small applique pieces.
I love Pellon's other products. The craft weight interfacing is great! But apparently they haven't solved the release paper issue. Or - there is an awful lot of old product still going out the door!
By the way, Suze left me a comment saying I can remove the paper backing before applying heat and the web will work just fine. I finally had a chance to try it and it was great! Now, why didn't I think of that? Thanks so much, Suze. Yes, I have almost a yard left of the stuff! I'm too tight to just throw it out and now I feel all "green" to know I won't have to!
With that resolved, I can get back to making journals!
