Jacquard fabrics are elaborately woven patterns that are harder to weave and considered an "heirloom" fabric due to the intricacy and craftsmanship involved in its creation.

Monica profile image Makes a beautiful bath towel
Reviewer: Monica

I am surprised this fabric has not received more reviews. It makes lovely bath and hand towels! Will try to post a picture later. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and ordered two yards which made two bath towels and two hand towels (Note: I wash on cold, not warm, and very briefly machine dry with the bulk of the time air drying) In sewing this, I used a size 16 jeans needle and my #8 Jean foot (for Bernina) and this worked perfectly. I also had some labels made to be inserted in my bath towels -- I think this gives a professional look. Check out Wunderlabel online -- excellent product and customer service!

I have purchased quite a bit of linen from you, and this is by far my favorite. It may be a heavier weight, but sews like a dream. I definitely want more of this luscious fabric. I used it to make hand towels for a wedding gif t. The bride loved them.

Reviewer: Sherri

As with some of the other heavyweight jacquard linen fabrics offered by F/S, Royal Crest arrived as a rather stiff canvas, both in appearance and hand. However, after machine washing and drying Royal Crest became a soft to the touch and lofty fabric perfect for towels & washcloths, bathrobes, duvet covers, bedspreads and more. The reversible crest pattern and two-tone colors of this fabric in natural and ivory become more pronounced after washing and drying. Machine drying produced very little lint. Superb fabric!

I bought 2 yards of this to make a towel-- because I don't have enough linen in my life! It looked stiff and upholstery-like in its new state, but after I washed it in hot water and dried it on high, it is just how I hoped-- gently puckered all over, soft but texture-y, perfect for the 2-sided towel I want to make. Later, I realized that it was actually a big enough piece to make a Spring blanket for my twin bed, so I slept with it last night as a blanket. Perfect! So now I need MORE of this fabulous stuff, plus a plain fabric for the reverse side.... I am so hooked on linen.

Lovely pattern and just the right weight. I reupholstered my Queen Anne dining chairs. I washed it 1 time to softened it up bit and iron prior to cutting. Very elegant and neutral for a traditional dining room set.

I used 3 yards of this to make a light blanket for my twin bed. Two yards are the center, and the 3rd yard was cut into strips are applied around the edges to enlarge it a bit. And then I sewed bias tape of natural plain linen all around. It is wonderful to sleep under this blanket with my linen sheet sets.

From two yards of this wonderful fabric, I made two hand towels and two bath towels. I call that a bargain! I just used a single piece of fabric for each towel hemmed on all sides with bias tape.

This is the first hand towel. I have one mare hand towel to make and two bath towels from 2 yards of fabric, and lots and lots of bias tape.

Here is one more view without the tree in the way. By the way, that tree was quite a stunner.

Window valences for my 9 ft high windows with this beautiful jacquard linen. Fabric is elegant and understated. (It is heavy though.)

I made 2 hair towels out of a yard of this 10 oz fabric a little over a year ago, and they have held up beautifully. This is one of them over a body towel made out of the IL090 Natural Basic (now sold out) and next to a dish towel made out of IL052 Natural-Ivory 823 Gingham. The fabric was prewashed on hot, dried on high, and ironed before cutting and sewing. Now, all of these towels are washed on warm, dried on low, then shaken out, gently stretched, and hung to dry the rest of the way. Wrinkling is minimal, and mostly happens near the edges. One of the other Jacquard fabric reviews mentioned that the two layers of fabric quilted up and became more three-dimensional with use, which you can kind of see here. This fabric makes a great hair towel, especially if you have long or thick hair, because it really soaks up a lot of water and doesn't put as much weight on your hair as a regular terry bath towel if you like to wrap your hair up. I don't recommend this as a starter project if you plan to bind the edges with a heavier weight linen like I did (see how wonky my binding is, especially on the corners? I had a tough time controlling feed on my sewing machine because of the thick fabric layers). If you use a lighter weight binding, hand sew the bias tape on, or have more experience than I did, then you may be just fine.
