Save Time with Basting Spray

by Sarah

There’s a reason basting spray is popular with so many quilter; it’s easier and faster. Basically, you put your projects in the fast lane with this stuff. You also take away the risk of dropping pins or even worse – disappearing pins. Nothing’s worse than tip toeing across the room dodging pins and needles.

Basting Spray is only temporary. It comes out in the washing machine or breaks down over time. And if your worried about gunky over spray; this adhesive comes up in seconds with rubbing alcohol.

When I want to spray baste indoors, I use a ‘spraying box’. It’s just a cardboard box with the sides taped up vertically. I use blue painters tape, then when I’m done I just cut the tape and fold the sides down. That way the box doesn’t take up a ton of room. Every now & then, when the inside bottom of the box gets tacky, I put a piece of paper over the tack – of course that sticks! If I’m spraying multiple pieces, I spray, remove the piece and quickly put a piece of carboard over the top. The fumes die down and sink to the bottom rather than float all through the room.

Hi Janet! Hmmm I don’t see why it wouldn’t be. However, test it out fully on some scraps before you try it on your project. Not just spraying it, but sewing it, stretching it, washing it – the whole nine yards. Be sure to let us know how it works out!
