Bees's Wax and How to Use it.


 Use a refined Bee's Wax.  A colored wax might transfer to your fabric.

Bee's Wax is used to coat the thread to strengthen it and prevent tangles when hand sewing.  It is never used on Embroidery or Decorative thread.


Thread your needle and hold the thread snugly against the wax.


Pull the needle and thread through the wax to coat.  It's that easy!

I love your website because I have always wanted to make a baby daygown. I purchase the pattern and fabric--then get cold feet. I found your website and blog and was inspired. I love your detailed directions and am planning to make the Priscilla daygown for my niece who is having twins--SO I will be making two! Thank you for sharing your talents.
