    Hello my lovelies! I’m finally starting to get some sewing done, but discovered I’m out of my fabric fusible interfacing. I really like using interfacing that is like a light cotton calico with the sticky interfacing on one side… i really don’t like using the polyester webbing style interfacings that are the easiest to find… thing is it’s been ages since i’ve been sewing and i went to buy some interfacing from my local spotlight and they don’t have it in- really need to get cracking on some of these things (they’re for christmas) so need somewhere asap to get some interfacing from…

    so Aussie girls, anyone know where I can get good interfacing from? thanks so much!! x

    Can you get some Heatnbond Lite and make your own with some thin calico? I don’t think I’ve ever see Pre made.

    Ooooh I know what you mean V but I have not seen that stuff in a few years. I am a total McCalls fan. The ‘weft’ series.

    Maybe a heirloom sewing store may have some?

    I pretty much avoid the fusible stuff altogether except in a very few instances. I use fabric such as voile, muslin, organdy, poplin, or something depending on the fashion fabric. I really prefer how it feels to wear instead of the synthetic stuff. It’s more comfortable, breathable, I never worry about it puckering up in the wash and it just feels a little couture.
