(pre-washed Layer Cake)
Do You? Don't You? Why? Why Not?
I am a pre-washer. When I first started sewing I would often wonder why my head would hurt and would get a sore throat when I would sew. I quickly realized it was the sizing on the fabric. I started pre-washing then and never even give it a second thought until I use the pre-cuts. I wash those too. But they do have some shrinkage so I have to adjust accordingly. I didn't pre-wash my Sherbert Pips charm pack when I made this quilt. And I could tell right away. Laying in bed that night I had the worst headache and sore throat. So my reason has nothing to do with fabric bleed or shrinkage. I just HAVE to do it. So what do you do???? Anyone else sensitive to sizing?
