When I think of quilts I normally think of, well, quilts! I thought I would look around on Etsy to see what kinds of clothing people are making using quilting or patchwork. I have made quilt block tote bags before and I even made a bathrobe, which I posted on Instagram and which actually landed me this writing gig! Below is a snippet picture of my bathrobe, which has pockets too.
So I think that one of the things we may imagine being sewn up into clothing, using quilt blocks, is a jacket. I found some really unique ones, including a pattern using fabric cakes! The first one up is a very fun snowball jacket that is surely not your normal quilt block. I love the simplicity of the red and white and the whimsical look. It was made by BlankCass. You can also find her on Instagram.
The next one up uses a more traditional quilt block but it is taken up a few notches with the fur trim! It looks amazingly cozy and really makes a fun statement. It is from Lulievision.
Here is the pattern I spoke of using fabric cakes. I think this is a very fun idea and the pattern allows you to customize your pattern. It looks really slick and cozy and I love the buttons! The collar choices allow you to make it more ethnic styled or traditional with the pointed collar which I really like. The possibilities seem endless. The seller is FranCreations.
After jackets I searched around for hats and found this seller who makes very fun bucket hats. The one pictured was made from a quilt from 1970s which is a super fun added element. They look so comfy. It is from RewardStudio.
Next up is slippers! Who wouldn’t want some cozy soft quilted slippers? These even come with a little bag of the same fabric. LemonStitchArt makes these.
Lastly I found a really wonderful cozy scarf that is not necessarily quilted but is patchwork. It looks amazingly cozy and warm. It made me think of a lot of possibilities for making quilted scarves that would make great presents, and would be quick to make compared to a quilt. This is from TrendyStop.
I am now contemplating what quick quilted things I can make for family and friends for Christmas!!! I hope this inspired you to think of quilting clothing items as well.
