Tips & Techniques

 

Keeping track of fabrics...

You found the perfect pattern, spent hours choosing fabrics to specially coordinate, and began cutting pieces (secretly putting together a few squares to get an idea of the final project). As you reach the end of cutting, you realize you are 1/4 yard short of your favorite fabric. You bought the last of that fabric at your local fabric shop, so now what?

Tip: As you cut, save the name and number of the fabric that is stamped on the bias of the fabric.

This will help in so many instances! It is a great help when looking for specific fabrics and coordinating fabrics at your fabric store or online. It is excellent when searching for that exact fabric online- just enter the factor name and number in the search! Plus, it is perfect for when you go shopping to have an idea of what is already in your stash!
