    I see that this pattern calls for sew in interfacing. I don’t have any sew in, but gobs and gobs of fusible. Could I use fusible instead or should I pick up some sew in?

    I made this with “sew in interfacing” as in regular white broadcloth that I sometimes use for toiles (muslins). But from the construction of it I don’t see why you couldn’t use a fusible.

    I used only one layer of broadcloth, but if/when I do a second one I think I’ll double it because it wasn’t as sturdy as I would have liked.

    I think I’ll interface the sides of the hat as well.

    Good luck!

    yes, I think you could use fusible interfacing without a problem. I prefer sew-in here because it doesn’t change the hand or texture of either fabric, since it’s a reversible hat. But fusible shouldn’t be a problem either.

    I used midweight fusible for all three of mine and it worked great, I fused the side that was the lightest/thinnest fabric to kind of even it up to the kokka lightweight canvas I used for the other side! Katja
