Steaming, steaming, steaming....

I spent this afternoon steaming the velvet that I bought from fabric.com that came totally crushed.  I had cut a piece out of the fabric before realizing just how bad the velvet had been crushed so they wouldn't take it back.  The Dry Cleaner did not  think the crushing could be repaired.

I steamed and steamed and it did help a lot but this velvet will be used for just dust ruffles, etc.  since it is too crushed to be used where it will show.

This is how it looks initially:

 How it looks after a lot of steaming:

It is hard to see but there is still areas of crushing that shows.
