    I’m not going to lie, when I saw the title I thought you might mean skin wrinkles. Then I saw the iron and got a little scared! ;)

    I love to buy fabric, too. I get a little lost in fabric departments, like at Wal-Mart, browsing and sometimes I buy it. For a while I was making little drawstring bags, and I made a few purse-type bags, but I’m not at all a good seamstress. I was thinking again that I’d like to make some more of those little drawstring bags, so maybe I will.

    It’s kind of funny, because when my grandmother passed away (mom’s mom), I inherited her vintage Kenmore sewing machine, complete with sewing table. I absolutely love it. I also got a lot of her fabrics. But, they’re all in boxes and all wrinkled up. I’ll have to get more vinegar, though, because I used all of ours cleaning the hard water out of the coffee pot.

    Do you think it would work with other types of vinegar? Rice vinegar, for example, is clear.

      Oh no! I don’t know if vinegar on the face is a good thing. Maybe I should change it to crease so people don’t get scared? Haha!

      Hmm, I suppose other vinegars would work too. White is just the cheapest.

      I’m totally a seamstress want-a-be. I’ll get all these notions that I’m going to do a project then get annoyed about 2 minutes into the project. I don’t like structured step based projects which is what sewing really is. You have to prepare a lot to see the final product. However, a little drawstring bag could be fun.

    The color on the finished product seems a bit duller than before. Is this a byproduct of the vinegar or is it only a picture quality issue?

      It’s just the picture quality. The vinegar definitely didn’t do anything to the fabric. I just didn’t take enough pictures of the finished product.

    Vinegar is amazing, isn’t it? I use it for all sorts of things and my grandmother has used it in her ironing as long as I can remember! Great choice of fabric for the example, by the way… I have the same one! Thank you for sharing!
