It has finally started to cool off enough here in Virginia that I can wear sweaters and cardigans. The leaves are turning and falling which means ONE thing for me–crunchy leaves! Haha, I know, I know– I can’t help but step on a nice crunchy looking leaf. There is just something so satisfying about it! I know I can’t be the only one!
Anyway, I wanted to share with you my favorite fabrics for fall. Soft and cozy are what I normally reach for! Here is a round up of my current favorites:
Sweater and Waffle Knits- Sweater kints are fall staple for me! I just finished cutting a Tulip Tee in a sweater knit from Joann to make the cowl neck hack. Here are some great shops for sweater knits:
- Raspberry Creek Fabrics– I want a cardigan in this Navy Floral
- So Sew English– Wide srtipes, like this Grey & Teal Stripe, are really popular right now!
- Knit Pop– Love this rust brushed hacci and coordinating floral!
- Miley Mae– I want a dress in this chambray sweater knit
- Surge Fabric Shop – Great selection of waffle sweater knits
Super Plush– This fabric has a wonderfully soft and plush inside (hence the name). So Sew English has a good selection and I’m drooling over this navy dot. I’d love to make a vest!
Double Brushed Polyester (AKA DBP)- Widely available at most online fabric shops. I have even spotted some at Joann and Hobby Lobby! I love this fabric for making shirts, dresses, and cardigans.
Fleece Backed Wicking Knits– Leggings anyone? Check out this amazing Dry-Flex Fleece perfect for cold workouts. Water Tower Textiles also has a great selection of wicking fleece backed knits. You can also browse the Polartec for Comfort section of Mill Yardage to snag some great deals on some fleece lined fabrics.
Sweatshirt Fleece– Because, HOODIES! Unless it’s over 74 in the house I’m usually wearing a hoodie. I don’t think I was made for the cold :). You can find this fabric at most online stores and in Hobby Lobby and Joann.
Quilted Knits– Perfect for vests! I know Joann and Hobby Lobby have a very small selection of quilted knits. Unfortunately, I haven’t found much online yet.
