Use a scrap of thin fabric as a pressing cloth between the iron and the back of Hotz felt. This interfacing product is available at any fabric store.
Why? What's it do?

"Pillager", I don't quite know what you're asking. I don't know what "it" refers to, the interfacing, the pressing cloth, or something else entirely.
  • The interfacing is the super-thin fabric used to glue the cut-up fields together.
  • The pressing cloth is used between the iron and the felt to keep the felt from turning into goo.
The fields from Eric Hotz are perfectly fine as-is. I just like the look of cutting up and combining a few smaller fields together, with the crop-rows in different directions. -- I hope that "shotgun" reply answered your question. If not, please let me know. :-)

Cut up pieces of these ploughs with the walls around them and interspersing them will make very good enclosures.

Bad photo but I think you can get the idea of these mats.
