I just have time for a quick drive-by post today, so here is your reminder of the day: Make sure you've prewashed the fabric you will use for this weekend's sew-along. I know the last thing I want to do when I'm ready to start a project is take the time to wash and dry the fabric I want to use, so do it now.
Oh, and in case you are tempted to skip this step, don't! Always, always, always prewash your fabrics. I wash most fabrics in hot and dry on hot prior to use. That way, I know I will be safe since I wash most of our clothes on cold after they are made. Go ahead and go do it, so you'll be ready to go!
