Follow package instructions to attach the trim using liquid stitch, these are the steps I followed, yours might be different

1- Shake liquid stitch well

2- Put iron on wool setting

3- Put a very thin layer of liquid stitch on the trim of the tshirt from the inside

4- Put a your lace on top of it, then put a hear resistant piece of paper and iron it

Step 3: Make the Flower Rosette
