See how to apply fusible interfacing to your fabric. Fusible interfacing is great for when you need to add stability to your fabric (check out THIS interfacing guide too!), and it will only take you a few minutes to iron it onto the back side of the fabric. No pinning or basting – take a look!

First, just a few words for those who are to do their first project with interfacing:There are many types of interfacing, varying in thickness, stiffness, and materials used. We’re not listing them all here, as another post is on its way to cover that topic. Check out my INTERFACING GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS for details.
But bottom line, there are basically two ways to apply interfacing, depending on the type: non-fusible (you need to sew it to the back of the fabric) and the one I prefer (and you might too): fusible interfacing. If you’re reading this post, you are interested in the latter one.
