Preparing your surface:
It's best to give your apron a quick iron to remove any creases and provide a flat surface to minimize any wrinkles or bubbles in the media when applied.
NOTE: The item must be cool before applying the flex fabric transfer media, otherwise the heat will activate the fabric adhesive before you have correctly positioned the item.
Important: When working with flex fabric transfer media it is important to remember that your design will need to be mirrored as the media is cut from the back. When we iron the cut media to the fabric, the design is flipped making it display correctly once on the apron.
