I am determined to create more of a handmade wardrobe for myself. I tend to make special occasion pieces, but not a lot of everyday pieces. I'm starting to change this, but as I put so much time into sewing my own clothing, I feel the need to take better care of my clothing. A large part of my closet space is taken up by workout clothing, which I throw willy nilly into the wash with no care for how it looks on the other side. But something I spent HOURS creating? I want it to last, and to keep looking as good as the day I first finished it. A big part of taking care of your clothing is washing it correctly. I am terrible at this! Especially if the clothing or fabric has those little symbols for directions. In an effort to correct this, I was researching online, and I stumbled across this great chart that you can download and print at home for FREE! Now I can have a chart handy right by my laundry basket! I thought I'd share it with you guys (link down below), because I don't think I'm the only one who struggles with this!
