Hi, my name is Marti. On behalf of expertvillage.com I'm going to show you how to iron a pair of cotton pants today with pleats. Ironing is sort of like a puzzle you do it in steps and you put it together and get these great results. If find it kind of relaxing sometimes, once I iron the inside of my pants I'm going to flip it over and iron the outside. Here is where I want to use my flower sack to make sure that my seam is good and strong. This is just a piece of scrap white light fabric cotton, cotton makes the best cover depending on what kind of fabric you are ironing. You always want to make sure you have a natural fabric the reason why cotton is so good it can stand such as a high temperatures. We are going to take our other leg and iron the inside of it always make sure that part that you ironed doesn't get any wrinkles on the other end.
