Does anyone on earth know where to get cordura fabric?? I am now thinking of making those cool raised pvc beds for the shelter dogs. Those fused plastic bag beds were a disaster for me! Ha! Anyone know where to get cordura?? Thanks!

Have you found any Cordura yet? I'm in the UK so I can't rec a stateside shop but there should be an online supplier nearer to you if you look for outdoor fabrics/marine fabric specialist supply stores (it took me ages to figure out those were the kind of places that tended to stock it!).

I've found cordura on ebay and there was a company there (sorry I forget the name, but I'm sure a search will produce them) that made pillows and the fabric for those beds you were talking about. They have an industrial sewing machine which is needed depending on the strength of the cordura you were looking at... Hope it helps

www.fabricmaster.net is my absolute favorite place for practical (not decorator) fabric at a good price. I haven't had a problem with them so I don't know how they would deal with customer service, but on the other hand.... I haven't had a problem with them! Reasonably quick shipping and quality fabric.

I found mine at Joann Fabrics, in the section for the "clothing" fabrics.  Not the quilting section.  They only had a few selections, like 6 or so colors, but I found one that I liked out of that.  Take your 40% off coupon in the paper and you'll find if for a decent price.

EDIT:  Whoops, thought you meant corduroy.  Sorry dunno where to find Cordura....

There is an ebay vendor named chikenliken who has a lot of nice colors of pvc backed denier, which is often otherwise known as cordura. The vendor lists it as "polyduck" so you can search that term.

I've never found that material at my local Joann's but oddly I've found it in the fabric section at a store I loathe going into... Wal-Mart!! The brand is Pro-Tuff by Oakhurst Textiles. If your Wal-Mart still has it's fabric/crafts section it's worth a look... It is only $3.97 a yard there!
