Vasking av stoffer / Washing of fabrics
I have to admit that I am the impatient kind of sewer, who will like to start the sewing right away - and that may imply to skip the washing of the fabrics from time to time, hoping that it will not matter in the end :o) But when I got all the beautiful Kaffe-fabrics, ranging from light to dark, and in addition using a beige background, I didnt dare not to. So I started the handwashing and it turned out not to be in vain! But what I didnt think of was the shrinking, my precut 5"-squares were suddenly NOT 5" anymore. And the shrinking was quite uneven. So nothing else to do but to cut to make it right, and now I have 4,5" squares in stead! But now - a little later than expected - Im ready to cut the strips and start sewing. Hoping to get something done today.
