I'm new to bag/pursemaking and wanting to know if anyone has tip are suggestions on how to get rid of wrinkles that you can't reach with an iron. I used a fusable interfacing that was heavier than I thought and it's now very wrinkled. Is it safe to use a dryer with damp towel? Help please!

What do the directions for the interfacing say?  Also did you prewash/dry the fabric?

I don't notice any wrinkles either. Do you spray the bag with water while you are ironing ? That usually does the trick for me no matter how wrinkled my fabric is.

Count me among those that don't see wrinkles; however, if you need to iron places that are difficult to reach with an iron (like the corners and bottom), you can insert a rolled towel, use a sleeve board, or a tailor's ham.  There are several products made to help you iron difficult-to-reach spots.

Thanks for the suggestions, the photo doesn't show the wrinkling very well. I realized after I posted ,if you just see the photo the bag looks fine. The lighting wasn't very good but it does have quite a bit of wrinkling. Over time I guess it will be less noticeable as the bag gets "broken in"

After wrestling with wrinkles from interfacing for many years, I came up with two solutions:

1.  Use the interfacing in your lining - that way, wrinkles won't show on the outer fabric.

2.  Only iron the interfacing JUST enough to hold it in place while you sew.  That way, the interfacing will kind of 'separate' from the fabric when turning right side out but the bag still holds its shape and you won't get wrinkles.
