Thanks so much to everyone who’s participated in our three question survey! I’m leaving the survey open, and would love to see any new answers rolling in!
This week we’re talking about how we press our seams. Sometimes a pattern will give specific directions for pressing your seams either open or to one side, especially if a white fabric is involved or if rows are being sewn together so that “locking” your seams together might help ensure they match.
|My favorite iron for pressing seams.
I seem to burn my fingers less by using this little travel iron!
But when directions aren’t given one way or another, how do you press your seams? Vote below and then share any thoughts in the comments.
And now, onto the link-up!
Seeing the results of your surveys is always interesting Laura!

Some people also use steam when pressing and others don't use steam. I do not like to add water to my iron as it tends to spit and gets my fabric or clothing discolored. So if I need to press a wrinkle I will spray it with water from a spray bottle and then press. I do have another iron I will add water to if I really need to steam something.
