At Spotlight, you can discover a multitude of designs, colours and textures in our decorator fabrics range, so you can curate your perfect home decor aesthetic with DIY creations.

For a more streamlined look, you can find plain linen fabrics, as well as a wonderful range of velvet textures to add a plush accent to any space in your home. And don't forget Spotlight's wonderful range of "multipurpose" cotton fabrics either!

Decorator Fabrics FAQs

What can I make with decorator fabrics?

  • Cushion Covers: Making your own cushion covers is a great way to seamlessly coordinate your home decorating into a cohesively themed aesthetic. Choose bright colours or contrasting patterns for a vibrant visual highlight, or opt for neutral tones for a clean and modern feel. You can also add trims and piping from Spotlight's range for an extra decorative accent… and don't forget the cushion inserts to complete your project!
  • Tablecloths & Table Runners: If you can't find the right readymade tablecloth in Spotlight's range, why not make your own? Making your own table linen gives you complete control over the style, finish and amount of overhang. You can also make coordinating placemats, napkins and table runners to complete the look.
  • Curtains: Style and design aside, creating your own custom curtains for your home is an ideal way to cover extra wide or long windows where a readymade curtain won't do the trick.
  • Bags: Whether you want to make a tote bag, shopping bag, library bag, laundry bag or some reusable drawstring gift bags, decorator fabrics are the perfect way to add individual flair to these useful everyday items. Choose heavier fabrics for bags that will see a lot of frequent use or will be used to carry heavy items.

Can I use decorator fabrics for upholstery?

Yes and no - depending on the weight of the decorator fabric and the intended end use of your furniture item. Heavier decorator fabrics including cotton canvases are great for covering furniture items that see occasional use, such as footstools or ottomans. You can also find a selection of weather-resistant canvases in Spotlight's canvas fabric range, which are ideal for breathing new life into your outdoor settings. On the other hand, if you're reupholstering a couch or armchair that sees frequent daily usage, opt for Spotlight's range of upholstery fabrics which are specially constructed for strength and durability.
