| | Re: Help! Applying Appliques To Hats & Clothes
I usually wash everything before using to get any sizing out. If you don't wash, the fabric might pucker when you do wash after sewing/embroidering. For beanies, I would wash. For ball caps, I don't think you need to because they're usually a hand wash item.
To make it easy, I drop any fabric or blanks into the wash as soon as I get home from the store, so whenever I pull it out from my stash it's ready to go.
