Why Choose Fusible Interfacing?
Being simple and quick to apply makes Vlieseline fusible iron-on interfacing very easy to use, compared to non-fusible, sew-in interfacing. Fusible interfacing is ideal for most uses and with a selection of weights and special properties to choose from, there will be a perfect interfacing option for your project. Fusible interfacing works with most fabrics, except on those that do not respond well to heat or are loosely woven where the glue can seep through. Check the pattern guidelines for your project, to find the recommended interfacing to use.
To apply Vlieseline fusible interfacing, simply use an iron on low heat to help the adhesive side of the interfacing permanently bond to the back of your main fabric in seconds. This simple and quick application makes Vlieseline fusible iron-on interfacing very user friendly, compared to sew-in interfacing. Always allow the fabrics to fully cool before proceeding to work on your project, to ensure the fabric and interfacing is permanently bonded and there will be no creases.
What Weight Interfacing Should Be Used?
General guidelines recommend that you use an interfacing weight that is the same weight, or slightly lighter, as the fabric you will be using. The manufacturer suggests to test a small piece of interfacing on your fabric, before applying to the rest of your project.
