Warped canvas fix

I have canvas Iím attempting to stretch over a frame. However I ironed the canvas to remove some creases and set the iron too high and warped the canvas so it isnít stretching evenly. I could get a smaller frame, but I would rather not. Is there anyway to fix it? Add water? Stretch it further? Thanks!

I've had luck by attaching to the frame while the fabric was wet. Then it tightened as it dried. I've never burned the fabric so I'm not sure how it would react. I'm thinking give wetting a try but know you may have to to smaller and only use the undamaged part or buy new canvas.
