Care Instructions

    Have you ever wondered, should I wash my fabric before sewing? The answer is a resounding YES. Washing fabric before sewing not only removes any dust and particles from the manufacturing process, but it also is an important step in pre-shrinking your fabric. Now I am sure I have you asking, why do I need to pre-shrink my fabric? Well, if you think of any ready to wear garment you have bought before, you wore it once, it looked fabulous. But then, after it was washed it became too small and unwearable, the reason for this is the fabric was not pre-shrunk. By pre-shrinking the fabric, and then cutting and sewing your project you are avoiding it shrinking in the future. This will result in a garment that will fit better and be worn for years to come.
French Terry & Rib Knit (Cotton Spandex)
  • Pre-wash your French terry fabric before sewing; cotton is a natural fiber, it can shrink between 5-10%
  • Wash in cold water (below 30 degrees)
  • Tumble dry on low or air dry

Waffle Fabric (Cotton Spandex)

  • Pre-wash your waffle fabric before sewing. Waffle fabric, due to its texture will condense after washing. Waffle can shrink between 10-15% after its first wash.
  • Wash in cold water (below 30 degrees)
