Hi Everyone! Let's talk about - Heavyweight Specialty Fabrics! Coats, jackets, jeans, handbags, skirts, and more on-trend styles are all on the agenda for this topic! Vegan & Natural Leather, Microsuede, Faux Fur, and Denim... I love working with these types of fabrics, they bring such an authentic look and feel to the garments. Each piece truly becomes "Fashion in Miniature"! Working with these heavier weight fabrics may be intimidating for some, but the results are so breathtaking, I urge you to take that daring step and try something new!
My hope is that after this course, you will no longer fear these specialty fabrics and have the confidence to choose an authentic looking piece of fabric for your doll garment when desired!
Are you ready? Let's go...
In the videos posted below, I share with you an overview of the month-long topic, take a deep dive into different fabrics, and share some examples, and then take a detailed look at recommended tools. I hope this will encourage and inspire you to break out of your comfort zone and sew with these beautiful fabrics!

Depending on where you live, some types of fabrics may be easier to find than others. For doll size projects you can also check discount stores for jackets or skirts that can work well for your projects too! The nice thing about these finds is that they usually have coordinating linings included! If you like to shop online, check out these sources for specialty fabrics and the tools I recommend:
