Are you guilty of not storing your interfacing properly? Let me show you how to store interfacing to keep it wrinkle free and ready to use when you need it.
On the weekend, Dave and I made a quick trip across the border so I could use the great coupons that Joanns emailed out last week.
The 40% off coupons allowed me stock up on interfacing that I was running short of.
This morning when I was putting it away, I realized that I’d shown you how I store my fabric, but I’d never shown you how I store interfacing to keep it from getting wrinkled and difficult to use.
How to Store Interfacing
I hope you’ve saved your empty wrapping paper tubes from Christmas.
Cut the cardboard tube a little longer than the width of the interfacing. I cut mine down to 21 inches.
Roll the interfacing around the tube.
Then to keep it from unrolling, wrap a strip of the paper instructions around the tube and tape to hold in place.
This has the added bonus of telling you what type of interfacing is on that particular roll.
Or you could cut a slit all the way along one side of the leftover piece of cardboard tube…
Write the name and weight on it and slip it around the roll of interfacing.
I keep interfacing scraps in labelled Ziploc® bags in the bottom of a Sterilite 28 Qt Storage Bin.
My storage bin measures 23″ X 16.25″ X 6″.
I’m all stocked up on fusible interfacing for a while!
