Professor––I’m in the process of unfolding a paper pattern, doing a rough-cut-out of the pieces, and ironing them flat. Trouble is they don’t go flat, really, with ironing. They lose most of the big creases and wrinkles, but some of that stays there in the paper. Do you know any technique for getting these gossamer little things to actually lie flat and behave? Thanks.
Jimmy C, I know some people will iron freezer paper to the back. You can find freezer paper at your local grocery store. One side is waxy and will go to the wrong side of your patterns. The heat will make it stick but it’s usually not permanent and can be peeled off. It’ll also make your patterns more durable. Hope this helps.
