Interfacing is not expensive to buy and why would you want to substitute dryer sheets? An old dryer sheet might leave a grease stain on your fabric.

I've heard you can use coffee filters.

The grease from the dryer sheet will gunk up the sewing machine. Not a happy thing to deal with.

You can get interfacing that is sew in stuff, rather than iron on and cut into size you need. I have the heavy stuff and cut some into inch size strips to have handy for things. Never know when a little piece is all you need and it is there. Also can get the breathable type fabrics which I love to use as interfacing for everyday things. It softens nicely, to the point some you can get dissolves.
