Terrific Tip Tuesday: Using Starch

TerifficTip

I love the feel of perfectly pressed fabric! It is easier to cut which makes it easier to piece and ultimately means a better result. This tip I learned in some class long ago, but I’ve got to share it even if I can’t properly credit it! If you spray your starch (or starch alternative or water or whatever you use) onto the back of the fabric, it will permeate the fabric.

Then you press from the top. If you do spray from the top, the starch/starch alternative/water will mostly evaporate without permeating the fabric. It makes sense and when I tested the theory, it proved true!
