I am looking for a dog print fabric with tan shih tzus on it. Need to make a quilt for a Christmas gift.

Any ideas?

Kathy

Oh my gosh Ramona. They even have Corgi fabrics! It never occurred to me to Google for a Corgi fabric. It is pricey, $18 a yard and up. But how cute!

Did you read about that store - they make their own fabric - quite a story!

Hi Ramona,

I checked out this site and they even have min pin fabric. I have a 5 year old min pin that still acts like a puppy. Great site, but yes it is pricey.

I saw this and thought, "No way are they going to have Calley fabric, our dog, a vizsla."

Oh my, here she is...

How cool! Are you going to dig into your wallet and order some?  Did you read the disclaimer that it's not fire retardant treated and so is not recommended for children or display in public buildings?  Are other cottons treated? Flannels are flame retardant but I'm not aware of cotton.

Actually most fabrics are not treated.  The only ones that are have a tag on the bolt saying they are cleared for use in childrens sleepwear.

I've ordered from spoonflower, have you checked out their map of the world on fabric?  Pretty neat.

Gini, when you get your fabric - would you let us know the quality and if it is really worth the $18 / yard...

I was looking for a particular pattern,  the fabric was fine for quilting but not for appliqué.  Too open weaved.   So, unless it is a particular pattern you can't find anywhere else, I wouldn't spend the money.

I have found all kinds of animal fabrics by searching for the fabric by the name of the animal or by searching groups of animals such as dog fabrics.
