When I put the fabric into its bath, it hung on top of the water for a few seconds, then started to fall piece by piece. It looks a little bit like a sting ray here!
There was a lot of color to remove. I changed the soaking water six times before it stayed clear enough that I was satisfied.
I laid the pieces out on a towel to dry, trying to keep them as square as possible. After soaking, the squares ended up approximately a quarter of an inch smaller in one direction so I'll have to trim them before they are ready for the sewing process.
Linking up to MOP Monday.
