Nothing Like...

Washing fabric in the bathtub to appreciate modern technology.

What can I say? I was too cheap to pay $1.75 to wash less than a yard of a fabric (plus $1.50) to dry it. I was also too impatient to wait until I had enough fabric for a real load of laundry.

As crafts/sewing people, you know what I'm talking about. Like me, you've likely done it before. And you'll do it again.

I just hope I was rough enough to get any excess dyes (that would run out of the fabric). I think most manufacturers use colorfast dies nowadays, but since I say that, it probably won't be true...

  1. lol- I've thought about doing that with some of the stuff I use. Like tee shirts. I mean, come on, all I'm doin' is washin' the thrift out!
