I didn't buy those instructions, but I have the same thing with a dfferent name. I haven't made it yet.
The mesh iron guard is to keep the velvet nap from being crushed when you fuse it to the rest of the band. Velvet is supposed to be steamed not ironed.
You can google "ironing velvet" and find some other ideas: using another piece of velvet, using a towel, something called a Velvaboard.
Hope that helps some!
