Using interfacing with appliques?

I recently did an applique with fabric that looks wavy / rippled after being washed. The fabric was prewashed in advance and I used a tear away stabilizer. I was wondering if using interfacing on the back of the fabric would've given it more support and preventing it from having a ripped appearance after washing. Anyone had experience with this?

I use heat 'n bond light on the back of all of my applique fabrics. What did you stitch the applique to? If it was stitched to any knit fabric, like a tee shirt, you need to use a cut-away stabilizer.

The applique was stitched to knit fabric. I have some Heat n Bond but it is medium. Do you think this will work?

The only Heat 'n Bond that you should sew thru is the light according to the instructions. You CAN sew thru the other weights but it'll gum up your needle & it may cause skipped stitches. If you're not sewing the applique on, any weight will work as long as you're happy with the weight/stiffness.

The light is much better for this purpose. Did you wash the knit fabric that you appliqued to? You need to also do that and use a polymesh cut away stabilizer.
