How to get the Primitive look- I dip each stitched ornament in 3 tbsp instant coffee/ 1 cup water. - I squeeze out, and pat onto a towel, and place on a baking sheet, on my oven's lowest setting. I lift them and turn them every 4 minutes, opening the oven door also helps prevent scalding. - When they are only slightly damp, I remove them , and finish off the drying using an iron. I press quickly, as not to scald the fabric.

How to SUCCESSFULLY get the Creases Out Of Aida Cloth- this is straight from "Hints from Heloise" and works with all wrinkles that won't iron out. Wet fabric, blot dry aida, roll on wax paper roll with wax paper lining, freeze, unroll and iron frozen fabric on med w/ no steam. Took her 10 min to say the same thing.
