Hi. Was hoping someone could help with a fusible interfacing question. My fabric is longer than my interfacing. Can I use two pieces of interfacing on the same piece or does it have to be one continuous bit.
Help much appreciated

I've used multiple pieces with no problems. :)

it doesn't matter what type of sewing you do. you are sewing, and sewing is good.

Thank you lelliebunny, that's exactly what I was hoping to hear as my peice is nearly two meters long and thin.

I have done this many times as well. I have learned to pink the edges that will butt up and fit together. Butting up two straight edges allows the join to transfer through the fabric to the top of the fabric unless the fabric is heavy like a wool coating. I iron one piece to the fashion fabric and then butt up the zigzags to each other so they fit together like a puzzle piece. Then I fuse the second piece of interfacing. This should prevent any ridges or joins showing through.
