Day Three of Favorite Things Week


One of my favorite items is Best Press by Mary Ellen, the clear starch alternative. I do a lot of applique and this product is perfect to prepare my applique pieces. It dries clear with no powdery residue, and comes in several pleasant scents. A small spray gives a lovely, smooth finish; which is great when my applique blocks are done and I want to give them a crisp look. I also love to iron my fat quarters with a light spray of this product, because it makes the cutting more precise.

I love this product so much, that I now buy it by the gallon and use it on all my ironing at home!
