Hello 🙂 love the video but I have a question: will the wallet be too flimsy if interfacing is not used?

Ok, I know this isn't what you have made but I have a question on using velcro. The neck roll pillow cover I am currently trying to make is 5" diameter by 12" in length. Instead of a zipper I would like to use velcro. I am trying to figure out how do I even start sewing and where do I put the velcro. I added a full inch on the sides I am going to add the velcro on instead of the 1/2 for sewing. The velcro I have is an inch wide. Do I cut the velcro that I am attaching to exactly 12" so it goes all the way across? Or do I cut it shorter like 10"? Do I still fold it so it measure 12" in length and then attach the velcro? Ugh! Help!

This is great! Can you please tell me what kind of interfacing you used – is it the "fusible web" stuff that irons on, or something different? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but I am a real beginner to sewing.
