Known for being a versatile fabric, cotton is great for craft and dress making. Cotton is a hypoallergenic fabric, ideal for those prone to allergies or skin irritations. It is also durable and soft to the touch, making it a favourite for dress makers and quilters. The texture is also fantastic for adding protection in warmer climates and also keeps the wearer warm in cooler temperatures. Cotton is a low maintenance fabric because of it's natural fibres, which is why it is used so much in household upholstery. Why not try your hand at making your own curtains, bed sheets, cushion covers, bunting, clothing and seat covers?
