Preparing fabric for sewing

I decided to wash this fabric this evening.  DH is working late and I have time on my hand to do some sewing related things.  I cut a small square of this fabric yesterday and hand washed it and let it dry.  It did really well with no shrinkage.  I think the washing will get rid of all the loose fuzzy material.  They were all over me when I pulled out this fabric to plan the layout of the fabric.  

I really need to use of some of my fabric stash and this will get some wear during the cool February and March days, possibly into April.

  1. That sueded sherpa looks like a pretty sage. Washing sherpa helps minimize the fusses.

    1. I hope to start on this soon. Work gets in the way of sewing at times.

I am adding comment moderation as I found recently some comments that really have nothing to do with the post at hand. I may decide to change this in the future. Sorry a few bad apples ruin something for many!
