Making A Tote Bag

Hello Andy,
I was hoping you can answer a question for me. I just started sewing and have only used cotton/blends to make tote bags. All the fabric I have used I have prewashed. I am thinking about trying out home decorating/upholstery materials for a purse and another tote, should I pre-wash as well?
When do I prewash and when can I forgo this step? Thanks!
Tran

Dear Tran: Quite frankly, I don’t know the answer. Try it both ways, and see if there is a difference. Good Luck, Andy
