How to use Vlieseline Stretchfix? Here is a quick procedure in using Vlieseline / Vilene Stretchfix:
1. On Stretchfix paper side, carefully draw the desired design mirror image.
Then, cut out the drawing roughly.
Position the cut out on the fabric's reverse side. That means the rough side should be down facing.
Set the iron to 2-3 dots setting. Iron the materials with dry iron for a duration of 10-12 seconds.
Wait for the materials to cool thoroughly.
2. After cutting definitively the desired design, the transfer paper could then be peeled off.
Place the coated side of cut design faced down on the desired position on the fabric.
3. Set the iron to 2-3 dots setting.
Iron the design step by step for approximately 10-12 seconds while it is covered with damp cloth.
Sew the surrounding of the applique with the stitch you prefer.
