Snapshot: Sewing

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 at 3:00 pm

It’s been a while since I last sat down at the sewing machine–and I was definitely due.

It just so happens that I saw a tutorial for a very cute credit card holder when I was browsing through Pinterest–and thought it would be a wonderful easy project.

Of course, being myself, I couldn’t just make the holder as described. I decided this would be an ideal time to try out my idea of using fused plastic bags as interfacing.

Turns out, it is possible to use fused plastic bags as interfacing, but it requires some modifications. You have to sew the facing in, a slightly more difficult task then ironing it on (not a biggie.) And, you have to do any ironing after sewing on an EXTREMELY low setting so as not to melt the plastic further.

I’m not unequivocally excited about the fused plastic bag interfacing idea, but I’m pleased enough with the results that I’m ready to try it again with more non-clothing sewing (wouldn’t want unbreathable plastic interfacing in your clothes, ICK!)
