Q. “My test swatch looks very wrinkled; almost like an orange-peel – what does this mean?”

A. It can mean one of two things.  First, your interfacing may just be too heavy for your fabric.  You may want to try a lighter weight interfacing and be sure to test on another fabric sample before moving forward with your full project. Second, your fabric may be shrinking, causing it to look wrinkled.  Try pre-washing your fabric again or perhaps use a lower fusing temperature to apply the interfacing. If you’re experiencing these issues and need additional suggestions or support, please feel free to contact Customer Service. Our interfacing expert is here to help!!
