Take a look around your home and you will see many different types of fabrics and fabric-related products. There are, of course, decorative products that are used on your upholstered furniture, window treatments and accent pieces. But there are many other types that have multiple uses:
- Diaper cloth is perfect for those parents who desire to use cloth diapers on their little one's sensitive bottoms. Any new parent will appreciate the gift of personalized burp cloths made out of this soft fabric that is also absorbent enough to be used as a polishing cloth around the house.
- Huck toweling fabric can be hemmed and used as dish towels but the clean white color is a perfect backdrop for those fun embroidery projects, backing to a quilt etc.
- Waffle cloth has small squares that resemble a waffle, hence the name. This highly absorbent cloth is popular for use as utility towels but pretty enough to be used in sewing projects such as embroidery and appliqué.
- Terry cloth is a very versatile fabric. Most often associated with bath towels and robes, terry cloth can be used to make stuffed animals and other crafts, aprons, customized beach towels and quilts. Cover your outdoor furniture with cushions made from this highly absorbent fabric or protect those dining room chairs from greasy little fingerprints with chair pads made from washable terry cloth.
These versatile fabrics are strong enough for household projects yet pretty enough to be used in your home's décor or to make items you would be proud to give as gifts.
