ENTER TO WIN A FREE PRESSING MITT
This handy, two-sided Pressing Mitt by Dritz helps finish your garments with ease. The red side removes stray threads and lint, while the white alternative is used for pressing hard-to-reach areas such as curved darts and cuffs. Simply slide your hand into the mitt, beneath the white fabric, to mold a garment and press seams into place at the same time. What a useful notion to have in the sewing room!

Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite fabric to work with by 11:59 P.M. ET on Sunday, July 21st, and you could win this awesome giveaway. The winner will be chosen at random and announced via email on Monday, July 22nd.

Good luck!

It was hard to find but when I found the fabric with the weight and drape I wanted it has been lovely! This fabric is a dream to drape and it's very cool during this heat wave we've been having!

My all time favorite fabric fabric to work with is silk.
