I use something called 'Pro-Film' its papery one side and has a yellow waxy/plastic layer on the other which you iron onto the screen. Does anyone else use this? My Mum used to be an art teacher and has a roll of it.

Hiya all,,,

I live in the UK and we don't have freezer paper either.
The alternative I use,,,and it's a pretty cheap method too,,,is using Printer Photo paper.
I print my design onto the dull side of the photo paper then place the shiny side face down onto my fabric,,iron it at an averagely high heat for about 10 seconds,,,and job done! You can use this method for stencilling,,,where you print the design on the dull side, cut out, then iron it on,,,or print template, design, shapes, etc on the dull side, iron on, then cut your shape, template out,,,then just peel the paper off. Perfect patterns! everytime,,,and it's cheap to do. I get 18 A4 sheets at a shop called poundland. Any of the printer Photo papers work,,,Happy stencilling!!

I have found that when people use the term freezer paper, they may not find it, but have you tried looking for it as butcher paper or butcher wrap?  Both terms are used here in Canada - Reynolds is one company that makes it here and they use the term freezer wrap commercially, for their product sold in grocery stores, but I  found that when BIL used that term to look for a large box of it at a game/hunting supply store, they had not clue.  When other BIL went to the same store and asked for butcher wrap, they showed him right away to the big display of it.
