We need to talk about the reality of sewing “everyday” items with quilting cotton.
Sure, that wallet or zipper pouch looks great fresh off the sewing machine in your Instagram photos, but what about three months down the road when it’s been subject to daily use and wear?
I love using cute cotton prints in my sewing projects, but it’s not always the most practical choice for functionality.
In this video, I share a few alternatives for quilting cotton, tips & tricks for pre-treating fabric or treating finished makes with Scotchgard fabric protector, plus test out a popular stain removal product to see if it works!
