How to take care of your fabric: Before commencing a new sewing or craft project, it is suggested to wash the fabric as it may shrinks later. It is not always mandatory, so it comes to your personal choice. Following Cloud 9 Fabrics instructions, before or after finishing your project, a gentle wash is the best option as it will take care of the colour and fibers for a longer time. Machine wash cold with the same type of colours, tumble dry for a short time and iron it at medium temperature.

If you have any questions regarding measurements or anything else, please don’t hesitate to send me an email and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Happy sewing and crafting!
