Fabric Resources

Hey guys!

I've been looking for cool interesting fabrics all over the web and have not been able to find any!
Well, I have, only I'm a cheapie and I haven't been able to find any in my price range.
I've been wanting to make a shirt with little animals on it. I have no idea where this obsession came from, but this is all I've been thinking about, and I just can't seem to find the darn fabric!
I have found a femininity boosting fabric, which I'm thinking about making into a circle skirt and placing the picture strategically over my pelvis.


Maybe I'll find fabric with hair printed on it and make it into a maxi skirt.

Anyway, this is kind of what I've been thinking about:

 But I want it to be satin-y and not cotton-y.
Since the fabric is so unique I guess the best approach would be to make a plain shirt with a little pocket in the front. 

Both the fabrics I've showed you are from Spoonflower, which is a beautiful site where you can create you own fabric and print it on organic fabrics and so on. I love the idea, but like I said, I don't like to spend much on my fabrics and at Spoonflower, you pay for what you get.

Do you guys know any good online fabric resources? I'd appreciate any help!


  1. The elephant fabric is sooo cute! Spoonflower's expensive, but it can definitely be worth it. One of my classmates ordered a silk with her textile design printed on it and it came out absolutely gorgeous.

    1. I guess if I design my own it makes sense.. but if I buy someone else's design it just doesn't make sense to me to spend that much money on fabric :(

  2. Hello! Just popped over from mine to yours so to speak.I totally understand what you mean, finding good fabric on the net can be so hard and you just trawl through pages and pages of the same generic stuff. I have to tell you I have got all my coolest fabric from the ETSY supplies section under 'fabric'. That is where I got the birds. Also, spoonflower has a buttload of animal fabric and you can get it printed on different types of material, silks and stuff.

    1. Thats what I've been looking at in the past few days, but it's been kind of hard to find heads or tails in all the selection.
      also, I'm kind of a cheapie and a lot of the fabrics at etsy are kind of expensive..
      Do you have any stores you recommend? Thanks!
