    I ironed my 'wunder under' on the wrong side of the fabric. Does anyone know of and easy way to remove it? Or is it a lost cause?

    Once it's ironed on, it's pretty much stuck. Don't know of any way to get it off. Once the heat sets the glue, I don't think you'd be able to get it out.
    On wrong side, you are meaning you ironed it on the right side (side of fabric with pretty print that would show), am I correct?

    Yes, Teri; you hit the nail on the head. I know better, but obviously wasn't thinking. It is not coming off very easy.

    I don't think you are the only one to have done this. I will admit that I have done it too. Embarrassing, I know, but sometimes crap happens, right? ;)
    Hopefully you can get back into the groove and get whatever it is you are making done and show us pictures!!

    I have ironed it to the wrong side before as well. Also have put iron right on the "glue" side and accidentally wonderundered stuff to my ironing board. Don't know how to get it off the fabric, It was a bear to get if off my iron board cover. Still has a permanent "stain" on the fabric of my board after several washings with bleach even. We all do "stupid" things now and then!!!!
