When I used the Iron on Interfacing on my Mates Wraith Queen Dress I just straight out ironed it on...

you can probaly leave of the pressing cloth if it's a heavy fabric like cotton, but if you're using something plasticy or that burns easily, use the pressing cloth. Use an old but clean tea towel or something.

THANKS GUYS YOU ARE THE BEST

My first attempt came out a bit too stiff for my liking.... mainly because I used two layers of fabric and interfacing on both sides. sweatdrop

For my next bow... less fabric and less interfacing....? I'll experiment.... ish... ^_^

Thought some of you guys might want to know, the $3 Japan store besides the Aotea Square sells fusible interfacing for $3.40... or if you buy 3x of them they're $10. Each packet is 100cm x 75cm if I remember correctly. And it's white! <3

It helps to press straight up and down instead of sliding the iron across the fabric Very Happy and test a scrap piece first.

Simply put, and interface is a class that contains only abstract methods, and is used as a framework for a number of subclasses.

Oh, wait. We are talking about sewing Embarassed

@Rolly: Ohoh. I think that's actually a really good price. Any idea what strength it is?

No idea what strength it is but it does say on the packet that it's 30g/m squared.

The packet also says it's thin and soft, lol.
