Anticipating weekend sewing, I pre washed the fabric today. Do you know the trick about cutting off a snip at each corner of a piece of fabric to keep in from fraying like crazy in the wash? Well, if you didn't before, you do now. It works great and keeps big string-y tangles from forming and twisting around the fabric.
