There is nothing I can say.

The pattern calls for a layer of interfacing which you fuse to the magazine pages (I actually didn't know you could iron interfacing to paper until now!)
After I did that, I covered the front of the magazine pieces with clear adhesive vinyl from the craft store and ironed the pieces again from the interfacing side (for fear of melting the vinyl) Turns out by ironing it again after putting on the vinyl it helps to adhere the vinyl and get rid of any bubbles etc...

It also helps to have the vinyl there to prevent the paper from tearing when you're sewing it. It doesn't seem to have damaged my sewing machine. I have sewn PVC before and this was by FAR easier to sew than PVC.

My only suggestion is to use craft store grade clear adhesive vinyl. I have clear adhesive drawer liners that I was considering using, but I was afraid they would be such crappy quality that it would melt at the mere SIGHT of my iron!

i am sooooooooo happy you shared this, i want to make a comic corset!! now i know how Cheesy youve saved me a lot of house fires im sure ahaha
