Quick Tip Tuesday: Keep the pythons out of your dryer

Probably most of you serge or zig-zag the cut ends of your just-purchased fabric prior to running it through the washer and dryer in preparation for cutting out a new garment. Good idea! But an even better idea is to connect the two cut ends so your fabric forms a circular-tubey-like thing, and then stitch or serge them together. It should look kind of like a giant infinity scarf when you are done.

Sewing your fabric ends together into a tube prevents the dreaded twisting/snarling/mass of fabric from squeezing the very life out of everything else in your washer and dryer. Who needs a python in their dryer? 😉

Happy sewing!

    • Haha Sarah – sometimes I am in too much of a hurry to get my fabric under the sewing machine to do this too – but I usually regret it when I skip this step because it takes some much more time/hassle to get it dried thoroughly. Give it a go!
