How do I get wrinkles out of a thin vinyl?

I have several yards of a very thin vinyl. Part of it is very wrinkled, and I need to smooth it out. I tried ironing it between two pieces of 100% cotton fabric on a low heat and it got very soft, but when it cooled it was still just as wrinkly.

Heat it, stretch it slightly, and then keep it under tension as it cools.

If you have the time, and the wall space, cut it and thumb-tack/staple it to a wall. It should smooth out by it's own weight pulling down on it self. It will take several days if not a week or two.

Use plenty of tacks/staples across the top so it won't create new ripples as it hangs.

I would try a hair dryer. I've done this with good results.
