How to iron-on

Recommendation:
1. Always iron-on without steaming! (ideally on an ironing press)
2. We recommend ironing-on with a parchment paper - you won´t harm the outer cloth.
3. Always try how the filling is reacting on a small piece of cloth.
4. Unless the adhesive sticks to the cloth, hold it longer and press. Do not increase temperature of the iron.
 
How to iron-on
We iron-on any fillings with an iron. We recommend trying it first on a small piece of a textile. Iron-on WITHOUT steaming. Press the iron hard. It is the best to iron with a parchment paper or with another textile, since longer time is needed for the filling to adhere properly. Check if everything is adhered to properly. If not, press more and let the iron work.

Ironing-on of the one-sided filling
Put the adhesive part of the filling on the reverse side of the textile (you can recognize it by the amount or drops of the adhesive). Iron on the front side of the textile. Never on the other side of the filling!
Ironing-on of the both-sided filling
Both sides at the time – put the both-sided adhesive filling between the reverse sides of the textile. Period of fixation may be prolonged.
Every side separately - put the both-sided adhesive filling on the reverse side of the textile.  Put the parchment paper, instead of the other textile, on the other side. Iron on the front side of the textile. Not over the filling! Remove the parchment paper after fixation and cooling down. When fixing the other side, apply the same procedure like with the one-sided adhesive filling.
