There is another test with heating another kind of tangerine mesh. But this kind of mesh not so easily melt like the mesh I heated before.A mesh from potatoes didn't yet heat with my iron. It only shrinked a little bit, but did not melted and stick to the fabric.
Ein anderer Versuch mit Mandarinennetz. Aber diese Sorte Netz wollte nicht so recht schmelzen wie das Netz, das ich vorher gebügelt hatte.Ein Versuch mit dem Netz von Kartoffeln hat überhaupt nicht geklappt. Das Netz ist nur ein wenig geschrumpft, aber schmolz überhaupt nicht und hat auch sich auch nicht mit dem Stoff verbunden.

did you try to wash the "new" fabric? i´m quite curious to give it a try on fashion fabric, but it has to be washable then...

inspiring technique... i´d never had thought about that!

No, I didn´t yet wash the fabric.The small one is a background for ATCs which I didn`t wash anyway.Perhaps you can wash the fabric near cold, but I think it woud be better to "secure" the mesh with quilting or stitching.
