Hi, I am about ready to pre-wash/shrink my first fabrics.. ever.. and I don’t own a serger or my own washer/dryer.. so it would be a very expensive trip to the laundromats to put them all in separate.I have 2 contrasting fabrics for a dress. One is a bright pink with black polka dot with a white and flower print fabric for skirt of the dress. these are 100% cotton. I am concerned the pink will run.. but if I just put it on cool and the recipient of the dress puts it in on warm it may run when its done.
I then have 2 other random fabrics for other projects, a black with day of the dead skulls (cotton) and a blue with black polka dot (jersey) …
then I have 2 fleece fabrics light pink and lilac which will wash well together but I am concerned about what will haven to the rest, and unraveling (no serger)… and should I put them in together?
help please!! Thank you x
p.s. I posted this on Gertie’s blog too as it was helpful but I am still worried.
