Warming Up to Fall and Winter: Cuddle® Fleece and Faux Fur Great Giveaway

Printer-friendly versionPDF version


The turn of the seasons from summer to fall hits all your senses. The dusky twilight that comes a little earlier each evening. The crunch of fallen leaves under your feet. The smell of pumpkin spice everywhere. And the overwhelming urge to bundle up in something soft and warm! We’re warming up to fall and winter sewing with a Great Giveaway of FOUR multi-yard cuts of velvety soft Shannon Fabrics Cuddle® fleece and specialty faux fur. It’s time to get toasty. 

The variety of colors, motifs, and textures available today in luxury plush fabric is staggering. Shannon Fabrics is an industry leader in all things soft, and we turn to them on a regular basis for our some of our most popular projects here at Sew4Home.

For this Great Giveaway, we have FOUR multi-yard cuts (two and three yards each) of the following beauties. Each is up to 60” wide, which gives you more than enough softness to work with for your favorite project.

Three yards of 58/60” wide Shannon Luxe Cuddle® Ziggy in Snow

Three yards of 56/58” wide Shannon Luxe Cuddle® Shaggy in Black

Three yards of 58/60” wide Shannon Cuddle® Pandas in Aruba

Two yards of 58/60” wide Shannon Faux Fur Berber Check in Burgundy

If you’re new to working with luxury fleece, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that it’s easier to handle than you might think. In fact, it’s particularly forgiving thanks to the deep pile that conceals any less-than-perfect stitching. The main thing to keep in mind is to always make sure your nap is running in the same direction as you sew together the pattern pieces. For more information, check out our full tutorial on Sewing with Plush Fabric

Stitching with a Walking or Even Feed foot or engaging your machine’s built-in fabric feeding system will make quick work of all your seams. Because the fabric is being fed from both the top and the bottom, it can move smoothly under the needle.

You can find Cuddle® fleece and faux fur as well as all the other great Shannon Fabric substrates at fine in-store and online retailers everywhere.

If you're as ready as we are to start sewing for the coming “Soft & Warm Season,” check out some of these other classic Sew4Home projects featuring Cuddle®, Faux Fur, and more dreamy softees, including last week’s brand new Bunny pattern. For even more inspiration, browse our Project Index.
