 General Tips on Using Interfacings

How to press Vlieseline products


Try a small piece of your chosen Vlieseline product on a scrap of the fabric you are using before using on your project.

The straight grain of your pattern piece should be parallel to the outer edge of the interfacing.

Wash your main fabric before use, if possible, to avoid shrinkage.

Follow the manufacturer's instructions printed on the edge of the interfacing with regards to iron temperature and any special requirements, such as using a damp cloth.
