Pre class prep:
Step #1: Front Background Fabric: Saturate the fabric in Terial Magic. This product is a heavy starch that will make the fabric stiff to avoid stretching during embroidery. Let the fabric air dry to almost dry. Lightly spray with water to moisten and iron the fabric flat and smooth, no wrinkles!
Step #2: Interfacing: Fusible Woven by OESD or Shape Flex 101 by Pellon Iron interfacing to the back of the Front Background Fabric. It will shrink a little when you iron! Lightly spray with water to activate the adhesive. Smooth the interfacing with your hands (this will help to displace the air between the interfacing & fabric). Start pressing in the center and work out slowly. Iron the interfacing to the fabric. All edges should be sealed together. If you see air bubbles, spray with water and iron again.
Step #3: Marking the fabric: (removable pen) Mark a center crosshair the full width and length on the right side of the fabric. Use a large square ruler to mark the 90° lines in the center.
