Fusible web is available by the yard in the interfacing section of fabric stores or in packaged quantities in the notions department.
There are many types and weights available. Most fusible web by the yard is backed with a paper that is suitable to ironing one layer of fabric at a time.
- The weight of the fabric you are fusing will determine the weight of the fusible you want to use. A lightweight fabric such as a sheer fabric would use ultra light weight fusible web. The heavier the weight of the fusible, the stiffer the fabric will be after fusing.
- Buying fusible web by the yard allows you to create a tape the width you want or fuse large pieces of fabric, such as an applique.
- Sheets of paper backed fusible web can be traced on to or drawn on to create a desired shape. This allows you to fuse a larger piece of fabric and then cut out the desired shape.
