If you are a parent, you are always looking at new ways to keep your children happy. As a dressmaking parent it can be a struggle to find the time to sew undisturbed and we don’t always have the energy after kids’ bedtime. At Fabrics Galore, we completely appreciate the efforts parents go through to keep their children happy as well as keeping their sewing hobby alive.
This is why we suggest letting your little ones help you choose their next garment or bedroom print from the wonderful range of different fabrics available in our fabric shop in London or in our online store. That way, your kids can be involved in your sewing project right from the start and encourage you to spend more time at the sewing machine in their excitement to see the finished piece.
Therefore, if you are struggling to find the best kids’ fabrics to buy for your specific sewing projects, we have put together a guide for you, to highlight the benefits and uses of each of these textiles.
Kids’ Cotton Prints
Cotton is a very versatile fabric, which is perfect if you are looking to create a new dress or t-shirt for your little one. In general, cotton is very soft to touch and comfortable to wear but is still produced safely - making it perfect for children. One of the other beneficial traits of cotton is that unlike some other fibres that require delicate handling, cotton can withstand rough treatment as it is very durable. A simple wash will remove any stains, the colours will not fade away and the clothing will still look fresh after a multitude of washes.
As well as being used for clothes, our abundance of diverse vibrant designs can even be used for furnishing projects. No matter whether you are looking to redecorate the nursery or bedroom, we have fabrics available in heavy durable cotton - making them ideal for home furnishing pieces, such as curtains, cushions or even bags.
Children’s Jersey Fabric
Children’s jersey fabric in the UK is perfect for your little ones and can be used to create an array of different clothing items which they are guaranteed to love. You can make leggings, T-shirts, shorts, leggings, pyjamas and so much more, and each of the fabrics is soft and safe for all skin types. Jersey fabric, in general, is often used for t-shirts, due to its lightweight and breathable nature. Here at Fabrics Galore, we have some gorgeous jersey prints which you and your children will fall in love with, giving you the opportunity to create some wonderful homemade designs.
No matter the style of clothing you desire, at Fabrics Galore you can be sure to receive incredible materials, which will stay vibrant and soft without shrinking or discolouring. By using jersey fabric, you can avoid the hassle of shopping to find the right sizes and explore the world of design with your little ones.
