Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are some good fabrics for making home decor items?

Ans: Cotton, linen, and silk blends work well for DIY decor projects, given they are soft, breathable, and easier to sew. 

2. How do I know which fabric is best for curtains? 

Ans: Sheers diffuse light nicely but offer little privacy. Embossed fabrics help insulate. Lightweight blends in linen, cotton, and polyester suit most needs.

3. What fabric is advisable for sofa upholstery?

Ans: Tightly woven, durable fabrics like leather, microfiber, and polyester blends withstand regular use. Jacquard is also recommended. 

4. Should I wash fabrics before using them for home decor?

Ans: Pre-wash fabrics, especially for bedding and window treatments, to prevent shrinkage and release excess dye. Delicate silks and wool may require dry cleaning. 

5. Is it cheaper to buy fabrics online or offline?

Ans: Online fabric stores offer more variety at wholesale rates with added customisation benefits exceeding offline. Discounts + bulk rates are frugal.
