HOW TO IRON EMBROIDERY

HOW TO IRON EMBROIDERY

40132_8_ LAURASTAR PULSE ANNIVERSARY - IRON - PLATE

  1. Make sure you are ironing on a thick, cushioned ironing board or surface to assist in absorbing moisture from iron steam.
  2. Place embroidery face down on ironing board surface.  Never iron directly on embroidery.
  3. Use an iron with a protective, soft-press sole plate to reduce the pressure on the embroidered surface.
  4. Use an iron steam setting that is low ~ for delicate or dark fabrics
