If you think you’ll be laundering your finished purse, just remember to preshrink your fabric (and any linings
and trims too), especially if your fabric is a cotton or a cotton blend. (If you think you’ll only be spot-
cleaning your finished bag, you can skip this step.) You may even want to launder your cotton fabric more
than once because cotton doesn’t always shrink its maximum amount with the first washing.

And if you’ll be laundering your finished purse, you may also want to check your fabric (and any linings and
trims too) for colorfastness. To do this, submerge each fabric individually in the same water temperature
and detergent in which you
plan to wash your finished purse. If the water turns color or if any dye comes
off when you press the wet fabric between layers of a white towel, then your fabric isn’t colorfast. In this
case, you’ll want to either choose different fabrics or avoid washing your finished bag.

And as with any sewing project, make sure that you read your pattern instructions through and
understand them before starting your project. Also before starting your project, make sure you have all
the components necessary to finish your bag (e.g. linings, zippers, buttons, trims, closures, and other
hardware). It can be frustrating to be in the middle of a project, then have to stop because you're missing
an item. And purse components specifically, may not be available at your local fabric store.
