I have tried Glad Press'nSeal as a transfer option.  It sticks directly to your patterns.  I use a permanent transfer pen, like a fine point Sharpie to mark the pattern.  Permanent is necessary so there is no ruboff.  The wrap then sticks to most fabrics.  I use a lot of cottons.  I'm just starting to build a fancy fabric stash.  I haven't tried it on velvet.  I usually remove it in sections as I complete the basics. and try not to do heavy embroidery over it, unless I am leaving it under the stitching.  For example, if I were to add a spiderweb rose, I would remove it before completing the flower.  It may not be appropriate for all transferring, but it is an option that has worked for me.  It occasionally leaves a waxy residue on some papers.  I find it can be buffed off with a soft rag.  It has not caused any residue on my fabrics. 

Be Sew Happy...Cathy

Thanks, Cathy.  Great tip.  I tried this for applique and it works well, too.  I saw backbasting for applique with glad press n' seal demonstrated.  Also, if you put it on your rullers, it helps them not slip so much.  Glad press n' seal must have a thousand uses....and a thousand more we haven't thought of yet.
