Freezer paper is meant - originally- to be used to wrap raw meat and put it in the freezer. It's a roll of paper with a plastic coated side that slide easily over fabrics (for ex. to make quilting pattern templates). You can usually  find it in the grocery store in the aisle with tinfoil, waxed paper, and plastic wrap. I had a hard time finding it in LA (maybe everyone uses Ziploc bags now), so I bought some on a trip back to NJ. The brand we always had was Reynolds....I'm sure you could Google it, and buy it online somewhere.

thats a good question! i think with the freezer paper i buy, it has a thin coat of wax on one side to help it adhere to fabric when you iron it. the other side is just paper-y.

That sounds exactly like waxed paper.

waxed paper has wax on both sides. Which I assume will stick to the iron if you iron on either side. But the good news is that I have just found this instructable, haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it looks like the solution for those of us who can't get freezer paper here.

Freezer paper isn't the same as waxed paper.  Like someone else mentioned, it's paper on one side, waxy on the other.  Wax paper is waxy on both sides.  I highly recommend just ordering some online rather than using the instructable posted, if you're wanting to use it to stencil shirts.  I mean, the instructable is an alternative if you absolutely can't get it locally, but there are a lot of online sources to get freezer paper and it's REALLY cheap and one roll will last a seriously long time (also I've used the instructable and I'll just say that the results leave a lot to be desired).   I've been using the same roll since September.  I've done well over 30 shirts with it and I've still got a lot left.  It's worth it, trust me.  Here's one online source for freezer paper:

http://www.acehardwaresuperstore.com/reynolds-freezer-paper-plastic-coated-p-56660.html?ref=42

With shipping (in the U.S.), it's about $15.  If you buy it in the store, it's around $6.  I got it from the local Wal-Mart.

This may be important, or it may just be a random Portland thing - I couldn't find freezer paper anywhere. I tried three different grocery stores, and was about to order some online, but then I went to buy some lids for canning jars and saw the freezer paper, yay! So look for freezer paper in the baking section, not by saran wrap and ziploc bags. Those grocery stores are sneaky...
