Terrific Tip Tuesday: Ironing Vinyl


It’s time for another Terrific Tip! I love to use vinyl for bags, but it’s nearly impossible to store without it getting a little beat up. Those wrinkles can be frustrating and lead to a lot of waste if you try to cut around them. I’ve found that if I set my iron to a low to medium heat and lay a piece of fabric on the vinyl, I can gently iron out the wrinkles. It doesn’t take much!! Once it heats up, it flattens out.


Here are the results! Works like a charm.

  1. I am so happy to know this! I actually have a piece of vinyl folded up in a bag in a drawer and I know it must be full of creases. This stuff is hard to store unless you have a place to keep it rolled up. Thanks for sharing this tip!

  2. Thank you much. I have vinyl shoved under my bed and it is squished between all the other things that don’t fit anywhere else. It is creased but your tip makes it usable.

  3. I have an older piece of that “oil cloth”. It’s been folded and I was wondering the other day if I was going to have some trouble with it. Will be trying this soon!! Thanks!
