I use heavier fabrics for making zippered pouches! Well, I would, if I would ever actually make the things I intend with the fabric I have stashed...

I like to use the heavier fabric for pillows, cushions, placemats, hotpads and potholders. If I really like the print, I sometimes will put it in an embroidery hoop and add some embroidered accents.

I use heavier fabrics mostly for bags. Or if I have beautiful cottons that I want to use for a bag I will sometimes put something heavier (like denim) between the cottons to add strength. I have some fabrics from when I used to sew clothes that work well for that.

I have some of the heavier fabrics and have used some in quilts. I'm going to use some to make those cute drawstring bags that are becoming abundant on the internet since Jen posted a really sweet and easy tutorial. I wish I had the confidence to try making bags and pouches. I'm new at this sewing/quilting thing.

I also want to try using the heavier fabrics for those little coin purses.

Heavier fabrics are great when making cushions or tote bags.

Binks said...

I tend to use heavier fabrics for things that are going to go through a bit more wear and tear- bags/totes especially. But I don't really follow rules or limit myself. I'll add interface to lighter weight fabrics if I just have to have that particular print. And I'll use all types of different fabrics in a patchwork project.
