Fall Fleece and Minky

The end of July may seem a bit too soon to be thinking of fabrics for colder weather, but it pays to plan your seasonal sewing in advance.

When you want a warm, soft, easy to sew fabric look no further than polar fleece.  This delightful fabric comes in a huge variety of solids and prints.

Sports fans will be delighted with a handcrafted fleece item bearing their favorite team’s logo.  Kids simply love the many cheerful fleece prints now available.



If you want something different, consider textured fleece, which is often called minky.  Minky dot fabric is a nubby fabric which makes unique neck scarves, and hats.  It is also perfect for warm throws for any age.  It makes soft, charming baby blankets and other baby items.

Perhaps you are looking for something on the “wild side”. Fleece is available in many delightful animal skin prints. Velboa Faux Fur is another option.  It is a low-pile 100% polyester plush fabric which comes in many fun animal skin prints, including the exotic Pink Leopard and Pink Zebra,  as well as the charming Brown/Ivory Pony.
