I now have in store some of the new decorator weight cottons. These are still 100% cotton but they are slightly heavier in weight and can be used for placemats, cushions, bags etc.
I made a tote bag using one of the fabrics which has 4 different prints across the width -
and last, but not least, this NZ design
Why not try some fabric that has a little more body to it? Would make great cushions for outdoors as well.
