Mrs Bowden’s top tip – to wash or not to wash? That really is the question.
|You also need to think about how you are going to care for the product once it is made. For example, if you are making a bag with additional non-washable components; leather straps say, you may think that you will only sponge clean or take it to a Dry Cleaners for ‘washing’. In which case it’s probably not necessary for you to pre-wash the fabric.|
