Sewing Tip Tuesday – Pattern Prepping

R0001085

I’ve been using a lot of patterns lately and it can be quite a tedious process; cutting them out, pinning them to the fabric, then cutting out the fabric, etc…

However, there is one more helpful step to include in this process; ironing your pattern pieces once they have all been cut out, prior to pinning them to the fabric.

*Be sure to set your iron to a very low setting.*

By ironing the pattern pieces, not only will it make the pieces smoother with less folds and wrinkles, but it creates a static cling affect. This static will help the pattern pieces stay in place in addition to the pins.  😀

Hope you find this quick tip helpful!

Happy Sewing!
