Silly me; just realized I don't have instructions for the interfacing I was about to try using. I wrote to Fabric Mart, but don't expect a response this weekend. It's not a big deal if it goes wrong, as it's a small piece, but no harm in asking, right? (I hope not, anyway.)

I understand the general principles, and how to get the glue on the fabric rather than on the iron. I will also try to steam shrink it a little before fusing.

Specifically, I'm not sure what temperature setting to use on the iron, how long to press, and whether to use a damp or dry press cloth. Unless I hear otherwise, I'll go for the "wool" setting, ten seconds, and damp press cloth, and adjust if necessary.

TIA,
Liz

What you've proposed is how I've always handled fusible tricot interfacing. Try a test piece on a scrap of your garment fabric first. My guess is it will work out fine.

I have a ton of that fusible tricot from Fabric Mart; in all sorts of colors. I use a wool (or lower) setting, fuse from the fabric side (rather than the tricot side because it might melt) and hold it down for 10 seconds, and use no steam or a press cloth.
