I transferred the pattern onto it by putting the film over the paper pattern and tracing it with a permanent marker called a sharpie. then I centered it on the block and pressed it into place. Then I sewed it with my new machine. ( I was feeling lucky) It sewed well. Didn't gum up at all. Then I began the process of removing the film. It came off well. All of the little places took some time but overall I liked the process and will defiantly use it again. Good luck Panda. Please give it a shot and see how you like it. Post your results.
