    Interfacing

    Hi Everyone:

    I have seen patterns for cosmetic bags requiring interfacing. They don't seem to explain the process. I went out and purchased some off a bolt (not even sure which kind). My question is "how the heck do you use it" ??? I'm not sure if you sandwich it in between your lining and your front fabric or what. Do you sew it or iron it???

    Any help would be appreciated

    Re: Interfacing

    It depends which kind you've bought, there are both iron-on and sew-in kinds. You should be able to tell by looking. If one side has a bobbly surface, this is the glue that melts when you iron it so that is iron-on. If both sides are the same then it is sew-in.

    I've only used iron-on so I can tell you how to use that. Cut a bit of interfacing slightly larger than the bag piece you want to cut out, iron it onto the reverse of the fabric and then cut your pieces out as normal. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions for ironing it on which should be found on the selvage of the interfacing.

    Hope that helps
