Consider using a sewing machine set on satin stitch. The satin stitch could be used to create a border around the entire picture. Or use the sewing machine set on a zig-zag stitch. This stitch could also be done by hand. Karen

Use fusible webbing....Pellon works the best! This is used to adhere fabric to fabric. The instructions are on the Pellon. Hope this works for you!

Question: Iron on Transfer Did Not Completely Adhere

When I peeled my iron on it looked great. After it cooled I could see that it did not take all the way. Can I apply more heat with something other than the peeled paper since it is in the trash?

If you haven't washed the item yet, you should be able to use a pressing cloth, (a bit of terry cloth towelling or a pillow case will work as well).

Answer:

RE: Fixing a Peeling Iron-on Transfer

Put a sheet of waxed paper over the top and heat iron to a low setting. Iron the waxed paper lightly. Keep checking every couple of seconds until the iron on is adhered. It doesn't take long for it to re-adhere. Make sure when washing the garment or what it is on that it doesn't go into the dryer. Sometimes dryers are just a bit too hot for iron ons and the glue comes unstuck. (12/29/2007)
