I really like your pre-interfacing technique....it really does make cutting the pattern pieces out easier and more accurate...Thanks Michelle...:)

My technique is somewhere in-between. I usually cut out all my interfacing (after tracing the pattern), apply it to the main fabric, then cut the main fabric. This works really well when I am trying to repurpose an old pair of jeans. A lot of pattern pieces are cut on the fold, and it can be tricky folding the seams in jeans. Pre-cutting the interfacing solves that problem.

Great post - I do try to pre-interface and do it just like you do...whenever I remember! lol

You're welcome, Patty! Hope you are having a nice summer.

I hear you on the remembering part! I did cut out some of these wallet separately because I just forgot to pre-interface. It's easy to go on auto pilot.

That's great, Lizii! That sounds like it works really well-especially on heavier fabrics like denim.

I bet it helps with laying your pieces out too. It's always a little tricky to find the best placement when you are recycling clothes.
