Sometimes it can be tough to find a piece of fabric that's big enough for your mega-project. Luckily, Amazon has inexpensive one yard bolts of Aida in multiple colors so that you don't have to worry about running out. I personally am in love with the pale blue color. Imagine the possibilities.

Speaking of simple white fabric, this Aida fabric is the most used type of fabric for cross stitching. With multiple pieces, you can take on as many projects as you want with the classic fabric you love. Plus Caydo is a tried and true brand, so you're sure to get high quality fabric.

Black is the new black

Most fabrics come in white or off white, but maybe you're looking for a color that will really set off the colors of your design. You'll want this pack of beautiful black Aida. Caydo is a well known brand that is going to deliver quality fabric. Plus this is 14 count fabric, which is the standard for cross stitch projects. Definitely a solid choice to include in your collection.

For the delicate projects

Caydo doesn't just have the black fabric though. They've also got the classic white. What sets this fabric apart is that it's 18 count, which means that your designs will come out slightly smaller. It can make them seem more delicate, or help you size down a project that would be too big. 18 count is my go to for large project.

All the colors you'll need

We've shared quite a bit of Aida fabric, which is what you'd use if you were working on a cross stitch project. But what about more classic embroidery? This set of 9 fabrics is great for any kind of embroidery project. With a beautiful array of colors, you can create all kinds of embroidery, from tablecloths to clothing.

A more subtle palette

Of course the bright colors may not be for everyone. If you're looking for fabrics that provide a neutral background for your patterns, this set might be a better fit. Instead of the yellows and reds of the last set, this one comes with soft blues, off whites, and a rich black. This could even be the inspiration for a gorgeous color palette.

Aida color options

Embroiderers aren't the only ones who get options for color. Cross stitchers can also pick up some different color options in the Aida fabric. This set gives you a variety of neutrals: true white, oatmeal, and black. Why settle for one color when you can have all of them?
