. . . to getting into some proper sewing!
One of the hardest parts of getting a sewing project started when you live in an apartment can be the inaccessibility of a washing machine. Everyone knows that before cutting anything out you should wash and dry your fabric to prevent shrinkage of the finished item. I admit that I have often skipped this step because laundry was such an event for us. Hauling load after load to the basement, getting quarters, not knowing if the dryer is too full to actually dry anything, or if the washer your clothes are in will even work, have all contributed to my dilemma. Until now...
|You know there have been times you wished YOU could roll around in a pile of fabric!|
During my search for this apartment I made absolutely positive that all prospective places were equipped with a dish washer (for Ant's sake) and a washer and dryer (for my sanity). Having the forethought to realize that we are going to be cleaning up potty training "accidents" in the near future, I wanted to be able to keep my house clean with out trips to the basement or worse, laundromat, every day or 2.
I wasn't even thinking of the sewing advantages, but man is it pretty to see all my cottons cleaned, folded, and ready to be made into something wonderful. Now I just have to figure out what those "wonderful" things are. Until then I guess I'll just drool over them instead.
