One question I get asked over and over again is if I pre-wash my fabric, and if so how I keep it from becoming a frayed mess. Well since this is a Quick Tip post, I am going to give you the short answer. I don’t always pre-wash. But when I do, I have found that putting the fabric in a pillowcase and tying a knot at the top before tossing it in the washer results in much less fray. Especially if it is smaller pieces. One last thing – always check the bolt of fabric for washing instructions, I have had a few that require dry cleaning!
