Sewing Tip- Ironing your Project

Stephanies Stuff say’s that she is a firm believer of ironing your work as you go. It makes a good item look professional. Here’s a look at her quilt she made for her nephew.

    Thank you for sharing my post! I’m very much obliged. I guess where I’m from, we are used to being more laid back in our use of “Iron” or “Press”. There’s finger pressing as well with some of my quilter friends. Glad to hear of the differences across the miles 🙂

  4. It’s adorable! Ironing really is helpful. You can get flatter dreams and measure more accurately with an iron.

      Absolutely! Sometimes I press my seams before I sew them together. Especially if it’s a smaller seam.

I love to hear from you!
