Default embroidery machine applique question

Hi ladies! For those that machine applique on tee shirts and onsies I hope you can help me! I recently got my new embroidery machine and I have made a couple of appliqued tee shirts. They came out pretty cute, but my question is how do you keep the applique from getting wrinkled. It isn't too bad but I would like no wrinkles! ha-ha
I used the no show mesh for stablizing the tee. I used a spray adhesive to hold the applique down for sewing. I've washed the tee and the fabric before applique to try and avoid any shrinking but the applique still wrinkles a bit when the shirt is washed after being worn. What am I doing wrong..is there something else I should use to secure the fabric before I the machine stitches the design?
Thank you!
