If trains are the focus of your project, but you don’t have time to craft them into your fabric yourself, don’t worry. It’s already done for you in this pre-printed stretch. Patterned by large quilting blocks framed with corner squares and strips, this fabric is already ready for a life as a sheet, a curtain, or the top of a quilt. Sixty inches across and pulling from most of the color prism, the price is only $4.50. Considering it’s saved you thread and time cutting and sewing the pattern, it’s already paid for itself.

This pattern probably wouldn’t lend itself well to clothing on account of being so busy, but it is light-weight fleece, so it’s very durable and could reasonably be made into some winter pajamas. If you end up with scraps or just don’t like the way the pattern lays, each individual part could be cut free with a steady hand and made anew. Lay it out differently and sew it into a new pattern yourself, either with the same pieces or with entirely new ones. If you don’t have enough for that, it can become part of a patchwork quilt, or fragments can help someone learn needlepoint.

Fabric That Says “Cowabunga!”

If you love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or you know someone who does, this fleece could be just what you’re looking for. The pattern might not lend itself very well to everyday clothes, but it wouldn’t be amiss on a pair of pajamas or a housecoat, though as it is fleece it may be too hot for summer items. It would make a durable curtain or a comfortable sheet set without much difficulty, and while the pattern may end up too large for quilting squares, it can definitely make front panels or end up a fleece backing on a winter blanket.

Sixty inches wide, this fabric holds a repeating pattern is made up by manhole covers bearing the TMNT logo alternating with the franchise’s four ninjas looking through a circle, the backing done with a green brick print that has just enough contrast not to steal the show. It sells for $12.99 a yard and has been brushed and treated to withstand a rough life cycle. The colors in fleece hold well and the material is easy to work with, but you should take care to pin it securely into place when you sew as it can stretch a bit.

Floral Fabric Fights Frost

Anti-pill is a particular treatment method for fleece fabrics that resists the pulling and fraying of regular use, and it lends extra durability to well-woven fleece such as this. Depicting white and yellow Plumeria flowers and multiple types of leaves on a blue backing, this fabric is light-weight, soft to the touch, and warm, making it ideal for winter throws and bedding when bright color is wanted. It sells for $10.99 a yard and has a width of sixty inches, the size and quality making it a good buy for something so easily worked with.

The pattern is on the large side, with the smallest of the Plumeria flowers stretching nearly three inches, but it’s a nice repeating one with enough color variety that it doesn’t seem too busy.

Because of the size, it lends itself very well to blankets, or clothing that doesn’t have a lot of small parts, such as jackets, sleep clothes and bags. If sewing quilts, it could make a nice backing, or it could be cut into quilting squares without much trouble. The pattern would make it difficult for smaller squares, but three inches and up should produce enough of a visible pattern for effect.
