Wash your fabric

October 12, 2016

Once I have purchased fabric I go home and give it a wash. It is a ritual for me and a headache for the husband as I put most washed fabric into the dryer on a delicate cycle. Very rarely do I put made clothes into the dryer, I only have one for drying/preshrinking fabric!!!

 

Washing your fabric removes any chemical residue and stiffness as well as pre-shrinking the fabric. The process of washing and drying your fabric means your sewn item should retain its finished size (especially the length!). 

 

I then fold it neatly and pop it into the stash cupboard so when I am ready to use the fabric, it is ready for the project.
