I love using fabric to create shapes and whatever project you add too, it creates such an amazing look to it. It's hard to cut it out but there are ways to stiffin the fabric so it will feel like paper. It's an inexpensive alternative to paper and a great way to use your stash.
By stiffening the fabric, you will be able to fold and cut it just like paper. It can be cut to any size and the edges will not fray.
There are a few products that can do the job like Stiffy Fabric Stiffener, starch, interfacing, clear varnish, decoupage and elmers glue.
First choose the fabric you would like to use. Pretty much all kinds of fabric will do the trick except for fleece and very sheer fabric.

Paint, mists or whatever you like to give color to the shapes
Your creativity has just expanded from paper to fabric in a few simple steps. If you do not have a fabric stash, now might be the time to start one.
