How do you apply iron-on interfacing to fashion fabric before cutting out?

Lay the fashion fabric wrong side up on your cutting table (or other large, heat proof surface).  Lay the interfacing adhesive side down on the fabric.  Hold your steam iron about two inches from the surface and steam the entire interfacing (or use your garment steamer).  This will allow the interfacing to shrink (it always shrinks a little) before adhering it to the cloth.  Then press into place.
