Take care of the fabrics you find, thrift, buy? Do you wash/iron/fold them all before using them for your projects? Or do you wait?I'm asking because the fabric I get from the thrift stores always gets washed and folded until I decide to use it. None of it is ironed. The fabric I buy from a store always seems to make it to storage with out any intervention.
The fabric I recently purchased from a yard sale desperately needs to be washed… I know it does, but for some reason I haven't done it yet. It's daunting. I'm afraid to do it. Maybe because I'm worried I'll ruin it in some way.
What do you usually wash your fabrics in? Do you always dry them in a dryer or have you been known to hang them outside? Please… I'm looking for advise, motivation, or stories to help me procrastinate.
