It is important to wash, dry, and iron all the fabric ( except the inter-facing) to avoid shrinkage after it is sewn and to ensure best results.
Sometimes when I am limited on time; I grab a recipe card when I go to the store so I don't have to write down items that I need. I have designed this recipe card holder that holds 7 recipes to make for the week. It has pockets to store each day in and you can store a pen, coupons. I grab my book and have it handy when I go shopping. It has worked great for me.
