Applique Backing

Keep the used baby wipes and dryer sheets, for great backing for appliqueing. They should be washed first, by putting them in the mesh bag that you use for delicate clothing in for machine washing.

Using used baby wipes for anything is disgusting, but the dryer sheet tip does work well!

I don't find the idea of using "used" baby wipes that have been washed in the laundry disgusting at all. It would be no different than when we "old timers" used cloth diapers, laundered them and used them over and over again on our babies. Thanx, Siris, for the tip.

WOW! great idea! ...This will save me tons of money on interfacing! ... & wanna know another cheapie little trick? ...If you need black interfacing, use garden cloth It's usually black... (it's simply interfacing on a roll!) you get 20 feet x 36 inches for under $3! ... So if you ever need weed-cloth for your yard... Save some or cut some off to use for black interfacing or for dark colored appliqué! ...It works great!

* & for the person who said "Used baby wipes are discussing"... Don't you use them for wiping off kids hands when in the car & traveling?... They aren't always used on babies butts! ...Anyway, once they are washed in the machine with bleach, the germs are gone anyway!
