French Fuse Interfacing
1 yard pack of lightweight French Fuse interfacing
French Fuse is a lightweight knit interfacing with one fusible (glue) side and one soft side. This lightweight fabric is very useful to reinforce garment facings, and thin, delicate or stretchy fabrics.
For quilting, French Fuse can be used as the foundation for applique quilts using the No Sewing Until You Quilt It method of applique. French fuse is so lightweight, it's the perfect stabilizer for knit fabric to make a t-shirt quilt!
This interfacing is so lightweight that it will not stiffen your quilt or reduce it's flexibility. Instead the glue side of the interfacing will gently hold your pieces together and stabilize them so you can position all your appliques, baste, and then begin quilting without taking a single stitch.
French Fuse is available in 1 yard precut packs. One yard of French Fuse measures 36 inches x 60 inches. Please note, if purchasing multiple yardage, the French Fuse will arrive in multiple precut packs.
How to Use French Fuse:
Protect your pressing board with a scrap of fabric.
Place French Fuse with the rough, glue side down to the fabric and cover with another scrap of fabric to act as a pressing cloth.
Press with a medium heat, dry iron. Test the heat of your iron in one corner first. If the fabric begins to shrink up on itself, lower the heat of your iron to another setting and try again.
Machine wash as needed in warm water only after fusing.
You can create beautiful quilts out of tricky fabrics so long as you use the right stabilizer for the job! Grab a yard of French Fuse and see the amazing things you can do with this lightweight fusible interfacing.
