Well while cruising through yesterday's Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks featured designers I came across what looks like an amazing product... Hugs ‘n Kisses Appliqué paper which is a 50% soluble natural paper with glue on one side. You can print on it using a bubble jet printer, iron the paper onto your fabric, baste as per normal and whip stitch and then wash away. Helen has the papers precut in certain sizes but also explains about using the paper for printing your own templates.
Check out the post here for a good tutorial, with plenty of photos on how to use it and check out here if you want to buy any.
Looks like a great product which I will have to try..... will let you know how I go with it... wonder if it is good enough to convert me from regular piecing to an EPP fanatic:)
