Hope you had a lovely weekend! I didn't get nearly as much done as I would have liked for the Taylor St. Market (four days away! eek!) We went to a car show on Saturday, the boys' first ever. I am biased, but every lady there thought my cowboys were the cutest ever!
Now for a party trick, er...ironing trick. I hate ironing because I can never get all the wrinkles out. I love you mom, but I don't think you knew how to iron. Or if she did, she never showed me. I have been doing my own ironing since I was 8. Ok. Only ironing when I had to, but still... I might have ironed more if I knew this trick. Disclaimer: I am probably the last person to learn this trick.
INTRO: I was chit chatting with the ladies at the yardage shop while purchasing my fabric. I am going to make a floor length tablecloth for the folding table in my fair display. Folding tables are ugly, and I didn't like those poly-whatever they sell for trade shows. I'm a girl who loves a straight stitch, and it's been months since I have sewn from a pattern anyways, so why start now? Exactly! Anyhoo, back to the story. The ladies and I were discussing my bad ironing and they said "use a squirt bottle with water to get the wrinkles out." D-U-H Holy cannoli, can it get any easier? I always loved that squirt feature on the iron, but hated that I would use all my water for the steam function. This trick works wonders for muslin, which has a knack for wanting to stay wrinkled. So, there you have it. A trick you probably knew anyway, or if you didn't...shhhhhh...I won't tell.
