I use heavier fabrics for purses, pouches, quilts (either with other heavier fabrics or even mixed in with lighter weight fabrics), clothes, pet items, general crafts and the list goes on.

Topcat said...

I have used heavier fabric for collage, purses, postcards, ATCs, bracelets with beading, etc. in other words not for quilting but for other sewing projects.

I use the heavier fabrics for tote bags for senior citizens and children in a domestic violence shelter that my group, World of Charity Stitching, supports.

I use heavier fabrics for items that will be subject to more wear and tear than usual, such as pouches and shoulder bags. Gift bags are great too, because the recipient really gets something useful instead of wrapping paper.

Bags of every shape and size have a longer life expectancy(sounds awfully clinical)when fashioned from a more durable cloth. So also may garments like skirts and pants benefit from the wieghtier drape (I'm not copying this out of a book you know) Thank-you muchly for this abundantly provisioned sizeable stack of the above mentioned, which is to be thusly awarded in due time, say what?!

Lisa C. in GA said...

I like heavier fabric for iPad cases - and, believe it or not, if I can wash it up soft enough I like them for baby quilts, too. Mostly because they just take such a washing machine beating, and who wants a baby quilt that has to be hand washed, you know? Anyway, thanks for the great giveaway offer!!
