Preparing for Saturday. . .

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!


  1. I'm participating, but my Ottobre hasn't arrived yet. The fabric is alreay washed. :)

  2. Great, Rachel! I'm going to cross my fingers that your Otto came today or will come tomorrow.
