When sewing buttonholes; sew it over a piece of fusible web. After sewing pull off extra webbing and then fuse. Let cool and then cut open buttonhole. Adds strength and minimizes any raveling.

This sounds like a good substitute for coating buttonholes with fray-check. Faster and less messy.

Is fusible web different than fusible interfacing? I don't think I know what it is.
