Whether you are creative or looking for a way to lessen the cost of decorating your home, you can crochet decorator fabric for many uses in your home. Table linens, bedspreads and afghans are common uses that we all think of but you can also crochet fabric to use as covers and upholstery fabric. Motifs can be joined or lengths of fabric can be crocheted. Add fringes and edgings for a special look.
