Must. Sew. Faster.
I say it a lot. I use it as a hashtag all the time. But this weekend I proved it out.
I’ve decided to go back to prewashing fabric. I did it faithfully for years, but I quit several years ago, and virtually all of my stash is unwashed ~ with the exception of reds and the Essex Linen.
Since I’m also doing a “little” swap with Katie, and it involves cutting 6″ strips (and then squares), by color, from most of my stash, the timing was perfect to start.
Imagine my surprise when just the pink (granted, one of the colors I have most of) was 3 loads through the washer on Friday afternoon.
Then came the pressing. 80+ fabrics and just over 50 yards total. And cutting. 6″ squares to keep and swap, 2.5″ squares for the scrap box. And finally the folding.
This is gonna take a while.
