Crafting with Floral Fabrics

April 24th, 2017 Nick of Time Textiles

Floral fabrics are in for spring. In fact, florals have been trending for decades and the trend doesn’t seem to be fading out any time soon. Whether you are designing a dress or creating a piece of home décor, floral fabrics give you plenty of options.

Below, we have highlighted some of our favorite floral fabric crafts that will put some spring in your step this season.

Create a Bold Blouse

To update an outdate blouse, you can easily add a few floral accents. Country Living suggests cutting wide strips of floral printed fabrics, and affixing them to your blouse with double sided adhesive hem tape. For a subtle taste of floral, focus on the sleeves or the collar of the shirt. If you’re looking to go bold, give the majority of the blouse the striped floral pattern.

Tote Around Floral

To create the perfect spring-themed tote bag, cut a bunch of different floral fabrics into thick strips and sew them together to make one large piece of fabric. After you have all of the floral fabrics of your choice sewed together, fold and stitch them into a tote. This craft will create a totally unique tote to bring to picnics and barbecues as temperatures rise.

Spruce Up Your Table

To give your home décor a simple spring update, create a table runner in soft floral patterns for your kitchen or dining room table. All you’ll need to do is cut the fabric to the appropriate length and width and hem the edges to finish. You can fold the ends into a point and attach to create an elegant look.

Simple Switch Out

For a simple, inexpensive design update to your home, simply frame a stretch of floral fabric that you love. (If you are someone that loves working with fabric but struggle to sew, this is for you!) Instead of having to swap out all of your seasonal or holiday themed décor (such as throw pillows and knickknacks), all you’ll have to do is swap out your wall art.
