Sometimes a single layer of interfacing is just not enough.
You can add a second layer of fusible interfacing by just ironing
it on top of the first layer.

Things like purses, hats, flowers, coats, jackets have areas that would benefit from a second layer.

Try out a sample first to see if it has the feel that works for you.

This is common in better RTW jackets. A second layer is added to the upper chest and lapel areas. Pinking the edges of a second layer will help prevent a ridge from showing on the right side if fusing in only a small area, and not the entire piece.

I too do this all the time. I usually just buy a light weight and double up (or more) where necessary.

I do this all the time, and sometimes I even add a third layer.

Thanks for the tip. It's one of those "why didn't I think of that" tips.
