As the season changes, it is the perfect time to get started on your next craft or textile project. In winter, making warm clothes or a new quilt can be a great activity. To complete winter projects, however, you might need to take a look at what fabrics you have available. Depending on what you are planning to make, you may only need a few fabrics to achieve your goals.

Seasonal ideas

Maybe you are planning on making a Santa themed dress or hat, and you need a nice red velvet, lining, and faux fur trim. There are plenty of patterns out there ideal for your idea. Or you may wish to create a quilt for a Christmas present and need several dozen different fabrics of different colours and textures, it’s not a patchwork quilt if there aren’t any patches, after all. Plus, you’ll need a large amount of sturdy fabric for the base.
