Ah! Now what I'm wondering is if the interfacing is optional (i.e., if
you want the additional stiffness in your final cut piece), or if you
need it to run the fabric smoothly through the cutter. I suppose it
depends on how well the bare fabric sticks to the carrier sheet. I'll be
interested in how your experiments turn out :)
