The easiest and quickest way to get wrinkles out of vinyl: With a blow dryer. Low heat on the wrinkles. Smooth as you go.
I have this thing, weird as it may be, about being able to easily see ALL of my fabric.
Its a little difficult at times, especially with all different sizes of fabric.
This is the solution that I use for my fabric that is close to a yard to 2 or 3 yards.
First go to the dollar store and get the foam craft boards. They are with the poster boards and are the same size as a poster board. Then cut the foam board. I used my rotary cutter. I cut mine 12 inches wide by 10 inches tall.
It shows at the 13 inch part but I really cut it 12 inches cause I always start my fabric or whatever I am cutting on the 1 inch line. It just seems easier for me to line everything up that way.
You will end up with 4 pieces that are the 10x12 inch and then 2 left over pieces that are 6 inches x 10 inches. I use these smaller ones for pieces under 1 yard
Now take your fabric and fold it in half, lengthwise. With selvage edges touching. Then fold again so that your fabric is folded into 1/4.
Now roll the fabric just like they would on a bolt at the fabric store.
Pin the end of the fabric into place so it doesn't unroll itself and then stack it on a shelf or cupboard.
Now if you have a great way to store fabric under 1/2 yard PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I still store it in some plastic drawers under my cut table, but they get all mumbled and jumbled up and then I can't find what I need.
