In a clutch… interfacing recommendations

    The interfacing I normally use is a roll of Sulky fusible interfacing. It is rather silky and provides almost no body. Just stablization for the buttonholes and collars but not much structure. In a Clutch calls for a lightweight fusible.

    Is this too lightweight? Do I want something with more body? This Sulky will provide little or no body in my opinion.

    Can anyone give a recommendation?

    Thanks

    I am not familiar with the Sulky so I can’t compare, but I believe this is the one I use for collars and cuffs — would that be about the weight you want?

    When I venture in the scary world (for me) of bag making, I use the cheap stiff iron on interfacing.
    Shiny on one side, a bit furry on the other.

    I’ve been branching out into the bag-making world; I’ve been using a lot of this: http://www.pellonprojects.com/products/sf101-shape-flex/ – it’s lightweight, fusible and woven and definitely gives more structure. I like it quite a bit.

    Ladies, thanks for the suggestions. I am going to JoAnn’s tomorrow to feel them. I made a bag once and it was stiff. That’s not what I want, but I do want some body!

    SF101 is the bomb. Jenny, I buy it by the bolt when there is a coupon or a sale.

    I went and specked out your recommendations. The SF101 is great. I ordered a bolt since I can use it both for projects and for collars etc.

    I happily ordered online with a 60% coupon from JoAnn’s, so I got a good deal and it will last a long long time… fingers crossed.

    Might be too stiff for collars… What do others think?

    hmm, I will check that out. I still do have my 2 rolls of sulky.
