I wash and iron. Sarah.
Wash them first as they are going to shrink.
They are going to shrink a LOT! So definitely wash them. You might even give them a spritz of starch when you are ironing them to give them some body to embroider on. That has helped me quite a bit. And I've also learned the hard way to use a WSS topper when doing anything thick like that. Otherwise the stitching just disappears.
They sure do, I was suprised how much they shrink! Hugs Diamond
Yes - I wash and dry before stitching and then wash and dry again afterwards. I have not ironed them before (did not seem to need). I have ironed the back of the embroidery after washing if it needed (just the embroidery part).
I wash and iron them before emb'g and then again when done to wash out the stabilizer, then I steam iron them again.....Sue
I do the same.
Same thing here!
Same for me.
Well I sure do Thank ya'll for the answers, Looking forward to doing them for gifts
If they come out a little wrinkled I do iron them after washing.
