Saturday Sewing Tip – Used Dryer Sheets

Don't throw those old dryer sheets away, save a few for your sewing box.  

They come in handy for applique or yo-yo's or any time you need to turn under a tiny edge.

I'm going to make a yo-yo.  Follow along and I'll show you what I'm talking about.

Used dryer sheets don't add any extra weight or bulk to your piece. 

 Slick eh?

  Green too.  We like that.

  1. I save mine to use in the bottom of flower pots – stops the potting mix from leaching out the hole when you water!
    Your yoyo idea is great – I hate to throw away stuff that can be reused in great ways.
    Yeah, more snow here this morning too – pretty but come on now, enough is enough here in the south!!
    Hope life is good Suzy.

  2. Great tip! and very clear tutorial!
    I don’t use dryer sheets too often, but I have them put aside, saved them for different projects. It’s amazing the ideas green-crafters have come up with to use these. Now if we can just get the rest of the world to find a good use for them!

  3. That is indeed a great idea…pity we don’t have such things here…we hardly ever use the drier, being sunny and hot and all and I am fairly sure they don’t even sell them in the stores here. I have used them before when I lived in England and admit I tried to copy the idea with baby wipes but somehow it just wasn’t the same.
