ok, so I have a little project that is supposed to be done by tomorrow before 9:30 am. it's a really straightforward project that i'm not very interested in, i'm essentially making a couple of purse-like objects (but less durable). anyhow, I knew that it wouldn't take me very long to complete, and since I am not very interested in it, I have been procrastinating until today, when I realised that I forgot to buy interfacing and I can't go to the store because I live in the country, and my boyfreind is at work with the car. Does anyone know of a good substitute for interfacing? thanks!!!

Well... before the iron-on interfacing existed, people just used cloth.  Use a piece of fabric with enough body for the project, which may be any cotton scrap or for thicker things some felt or blanket.  Cotton will do the job.
If what you need is something really sturdy, try cardboard or plastic canvas.

you can use a thick fabric or felt. They should both work.

Dryer sheets work as well.

Holy Fudge-- that's brilliant!


Recycles the used sheets, or makes whatever you're making smell all fresh and clean!

Any scrap fabric sufficient to stabilize the fabrics you intend to use.  Self-fabric is a common choice.
Organza or old sheet are other favorites. <g>
