I am making a purse for my best friend who is a respiratory therapist and I would like to find some novelty fabric with lungs on it, or maybe something totally opposite like cigarettes to line it with but I have no idea where to find something like that!

Any ideas?

This is the closest stuff i could find: http://www.jandofabrics.com/products.asp?id=98. It's got doctors and stuff on it.

You might be better off making a felt lung applique or something like that, instead of looking for novelty fabric (unless this is for the lining of course).

I second the applique idea.

Or embroider a set of lungs..

Hand embroidery takes a long time, and it can take a bit of practice to perfect, but it isn't necessarily "difficult."  It does require patience.

I had kind of a weird idea - what about fabric that depicts "wind"?  I imagined those old-timey pictures of a face blowing the wind, but I don't know if there is any fabric like that out there.  That would be perfect for a respiratory therapist, if you could find it.

I've never seen fabric printed with lungs on it..but maybe you could do an iron-on transfer of an image printed from you computer if the fabric doesn't need to be too big?
