Fabrics

There are plenty of fabrics available to choose from for various types of product. Whilst I do like to keep a variety in stock, I’m always happy to try and source certain fabrics if you have something particular in mind – please get in touch via the custom order enquiry form.

If you have a preference for the colour of coordinating fabrics/trims/linings/backings to go with the main outer fabric, please let me know when ordering, as I am always happy to work with preferences as long as I know about them before I start making. Equally, if you are particularly keen on a certain pattern placement (e.g. identical colour stripes on each shoe in a pair; all components of a pattern repeat somewhere on an item), please tell me this at the point of ordering and I will endeavour to do my best within the limits of the fabric and the size of the item.

Woven cottons (prints and plains)

These are suitable for most products, including boots, slippers, nappies, nappy wraps, CSP, bags etc. My current in stock cotton fabrics can be found here. Unless otherwise stated, all of these fabrics are 100% woven cotton.

Jersey cottons (prints and plains)

These are suitable for many products including baby boots, nappies, CSP, harem trousers etc. My current in stock cotton jersey fabrics can be found here. Unless otherwise stated, all of these fabrics are 95% cotton, 5% elastane. Jersey is a knit fabric which gives it stretch (as in, for example, t-shirts and babygros).

Wrap scraps

These are suitable for most products, including boots, slippers, nappies, nappy wraps, bags etc. I have a small collection of wrap scraps in stock, though not all pieces are the right size for every product. I am happy to try and source others, or you can source your own and send them to me to work with. Please get in touch to discuss availability.

 

Velours (bamboo and cotton)

These are suitable for CSP (topper fabric), washable wipes and inside nappies (hybrid fitted and all-in-two). They have a short pile and feel soft to touch. My current in stock velours can be found here. Please note that colours are displayed differently on different screens and devices. Please ask if you would like to see a picture of a plain colour next to a patterned fabric to see if they coordinate.

Plush

Plush is also known as minky/minkee (but due to a UK trademark I must refer to these fabrics as plush). It is suitable for CSP (topper fabric), washable wipes and inside nappies (hybrid fitted and all-in-two). It has a short pile and feels fluffy to touch. My current in stock plush designs can be found here. Please note that colours are displayed differently on different screens and devices. Please ask if you would like to see a picture of a plain colour next to a patterned fabric to see if they coordinate.

PUL (polyester with laminate backing)

PUL has a laminate layer on the back, which makes it waterproof. My current in stock PUL designs can be found here. It is suitable for making nappies, nappy wraps and boots which keep little feet dry in the sling or buggy in the rain (they’re not fully submersible like wellies as the seams aren’t sealed).

Fleece

These fabrics are all polar fleece – 100% polyester. These can be used for fleece soakers/longies as well as nappies, nappy wraps, boots and slippers. My current in stock fleeces can be found here. If you don’t see anything that you like in here, I can try to source other designs depending on availability.
