Hey all,

Recently I've been seeing some stuff made out of this folky, 70s-ish, printed fabric (cotton I'm thinking), though I haven't seen it anywhere where I could ask the craftsperson where they got it or what it's called.

My partner and I have a master plan for our new apartment, and I HAVE to find this type of fabric, in fair quantities, for a bedroom idea we want to see happen.

 I've attached a few photos that seem ABOUT right...



This is a pendant I bought recently at a craft show that has the EXACT right kind of fabric...I should have asked her where she found it!!!!



This one is done in the vintage style I'm looking for, though a little updated.

Often this style has little dear, mushrooms, owls, or other woodlandly creatures (hedgehogs, etc etc); once in a while there's little apples or flowers.

The question is: does anyone know 1. What this vintage type of print is called? 2. Where to find it?Huh

Thanks, Craftsters! If anyone's going to know, it'll be someone on here, eh?

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

 I don't know the name of it but I've seen it on Etsy.  If you look under Japanese fabric you'll find it.  I believe it's an import fabric and it's pretty popular. 

Wait here is a listing

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25077538&ref=sr_gallery_16&&ga_search_query=japanese+fabric&ga_search_type=supplies&ga_page=3&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

If you look thru I'm sure you'll find the owls too.......but there's like 375 pages lol.

you'll probably get a better deal on Etsy, but I've also seen that fabric on reprodepot.com under Japanese imports.  I think I've also seen it on Ebay- search japanese import fabrics.
