You don't have to get the Silhouette brand interfacing, I think any kind would do to make it heavier and stick to the mat.
Thanks !! I want to make some fabric stocking ornaments. I thought it would be easier and quicker to use the Silhouette to cut them out.

I didn't know I could use regular sewing interfacing. The stocking will be sewn and then I am going to glue furry material to the tops .
I ordered the stocking cut file and the fabric blade on the Silhouette Black Friday sale
