Fabric Pre-Washing Tips
3. I do long length rolled hem on the two raw edges of all the woven fabric. This prevents the washer from ‘eating’ your fabric, and having to cut apart the ‘strings’ in order to get the fabric out of the washer.
6. Now you have an indicator that the fabric is washed because the edges are serged, no more playing sniff and guess wondering if the fabric is ready to sew. For the knits I take a safety pin and pin it to the selvage and use that as my “I washed it indicator.
Those are my two cents on fabric prepping.
What are your favorite methods? I’d love to hear.
