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!

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

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).

How can I fix a peeling iron-on transfer?

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.
