hello a few questions can i use fuseable interfacing as fuseable web? do i have to turn 1/4" under or can i sew (applique) without doing so ( fabric doesnot fray) thank you have a nice day kimberly
I think fusible interfacing only sticks on one side. And doesn't always stay stuck, which is why it is sewn into the seam. Fusible web sticks on both sides, to the two pieces of fabric are stuck together. And it doesn't come apart easily.
I guess it depends what you want to do with it. If you want to applique, use fusible web, but if you just want to stablelize a single fabric for doing machine embroidery or other top stitching then interfacing is probably fine. Unless of course you want to remove the stableizer afterwards.
If you are doing applique fusible interfacing won't work. You will need to get fusible web which has "sticky" on both sides. If you are using fusible with your applique you don't need to turn the 1/4" inch under. You just do your favorite machine stitch...blanket, satin, or straight (for raw edge applique) stitches around your appliqued pieces. I hope this helps.
