I don’t sew garments for babies, toddlers or even myself, but I love to sew! There are so many talented seamstresses in the Facebook VIP Cloth Cuts group. After years of making finger puppets and felt stories for children, I decided it was time to branch out and try different crafts – embroidery, doll making, lots of bags and quilting – with a lovely group of school Mums.
I found I really loved quilting, but realistically how many quilts does a family need or even want? I liked the precision, combining colours and patterns in blocks. Sometimes I struggle cutting up beautiful fabrics into little pieces – almost seems a crime but then you can create something even more beautiful in combination with other fabrics!
One of the best types of fabrics I’ve used is Cloth Cuts, 100% Cotton Twill.
This fabric has a bit of a slinky finish, a lovely close even weave and it’s a great weight. Along with the fabulous digital designs available, it is perfect for patchwork. It doesn’t fray easily so this is another bonus along with being extra wide and not folded on a bolt. None of those permanent creases to attempt to iron out!
Nowadays my sewing time is spent making Quilts and Laundry Bags for Aussie Heroes – an organisation of volunteers who make for Defence members (mainly on deployment).
The wide selection of Australian Flora and Fauna Fabrics is great and being designed by Aussies makes these fabrics even better.
One of the advantages of dealing with Cloth Cuts is the “Bespoke” option. If you have a particular interest/pattern – it can be created!! Not to mention that your favourite fabric will always be available. How many times have you been a little short and cannot find any more of “that” particular fabric?
I love sewing with Cloth Cuts Fabrics and I am sure I am not alone in this!
