Material or fabric in spiritual terms is that which has become tangible or has a reality of its own. Fabrication in the sense of lying is making something up, creating a Spiritual untruth. Originally simply any manufactured substance - and only later specifically textile - fabric in dreams is symbolic of the physical world. The colour and texture may be important in interpretation. In mundane parlance, fabric in dreams is a tactile representation of something we need to know or remember. A rough fabric might denote a difficulty and a smooth fabric or material a carefully crafted project. Seeing fabric which has been mended or patched suggests that our original thoughts perhaps had an inherent flaw. A patch of the same colour may be an attempt to cover this up, whereas one of a different fabric or texture highlights a perhaps innovative solution.
