Iron-On Interfacing

user-223132 | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Hello:
I just signed up to this chat room a few mintues ago. Sounds like a lot of fun people on it with useful information.
Witht hat in mind, I was wondering if anyone knew where I can purchase different colored iron-on interfacing. I have access to black, white and beige, but know that inerfacing comes in many other colors, I just can’t seem to find a supplier.
You are probably wondering why I need different colors when it goes inside a garment. Sometimes I use interfacing almost like an underlining, especially with jackets made from knits. Then I don’t need to line the garment.
If anyone has a supplier, I’d love to hear – even if it’s over seas!.
Thanks.
Nan

    Wow! I have been sewing a long time and have never seen other than the basic colors you listed. Perhaps I need to be re-educated. Where have you seen these colored interfacings?
    Truth be told, the available basic colors have served me well. I sew a lot of heirloom clothing now, but did do much tailoring, art to wear, etc. If I found anything lacking in interfacings, it was a sheer nude interfacing, but even that is available now. wish I could be more help.

      i have on rare occasion in designer clothes seen what may have been fusible tricot in a color that matched the garment. my guess is that it was a special custom product ordered by designer? and not available to public

    There is a product called 'Wonder Under' that is fusible web.  You could use that to fuse any light weight fabric to your knit like an interfacing.

    Just an idea....

    Im with solosmocker--in 30 years I've never seen color except the basics already outlined.  I shall watch this discussion as it would be good to find such a supplier.  I'm sure there's a need.   Good luck. Z

    I've not tried it myself but the author of this site says "If a fusible tricot interfacing such as Easy-Knit is used, it can be dyed to match the fabric using cold water dyes." ~ http://www.directcon.net/wander/liztrim.htm

    I too have never seen colored iron on interfacing. For light colors, beige is a good bet it disappears. Dying interfacing? Who has time and I have never had the need except in sheers and then I might just use an extra layer of the outer fabric.
