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.

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

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