A dumb question:

Do you preshrink your fusible interfacing???

For Christmas, I gave my daughter this pattern and fabric and told her we would work together to sew it this week. I have been sewing for more years than I want to claim and I have never preshrunk my interfacing so you can imagine my surprise when the step-by-step-helping-the-new-little-seamstress kind of instructions said to preshrink the fusible interfacing by putting it in hot water for 20 minutes.
I do have one dress that I made where the interfacing went wonky on me. At the time I blamed it on the fabric which was ridiculously hard to work with, but now I wonder. . .

Locals: Don't forget about the scrapbook paper and sticker sale tomorrow, Jan 1. Details are here.

  1. Yep....I have had too many projects go wonky on me. If I am going to wash the item I make, I wash the fabrics AND the interfacing before I sew it.


LOVE hearing from you
