Interfacing

Charlie Bradley Ross Friday, 1 March 2019

Interfacing is a cross between fabric and glue, and it works as an adhesive when you iron it. It can also be referred to as fusible or interlining. It's used if you’re working with a fabric that needs a little extra support or needs to stand up or to hold the material in place. It’s often used in applique, quilts, and tailoring.
