1. Prewash the apron.
2. Position the stencil on the yoke of the apron. Fill the openings with crystals. Tweezers make it easier to pick up the crystals.
3. Cover the stencil and crystals with the protective paper. Iron the crystals, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Use a hard pressing surface, not padded like an ironing board to iron with sufficient pressure. Allow the stencil to cool before removing it. If the crystals are not completely adhered, replace the protective paper and iron again.
Tip: The stencil is heat resistant and reusable. Embellish plain placemats for a complete nautical ensemble.
