    Since I don't wash out the sizing the fabric came with, I don't have to starch anything. Even better.

    Starching

    Just thought I would share.

    A couple years ago I learned that starching would help me with cutting and sewing of my fabric since it is so soft. At first I used the spray starch but that just didn't seem to help me much.

    I was in Walmart one day and discovered liquid starch. Purchased it and a oblong plastic container. I prewash all my fabric, except the precuts.

    Then I place the fabric including all my precuts into this container (of course a few at a time) let them soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Gently squeeze some of the excess starch out (do not wring) and hang them in the garage.

    Someday I will purchase a outdoor clothes line, in the meantime the line my husband hung for me works.
    I tried placing them in dryer but it just doesn't work as well as hanging them.

    I have never had a problem with my precuts getting out of shape. Once in a great while one might get a bit of a bow but irons out nice and straight and with no stretching.

    Starching has helped me a lot. Hope this helps others.
