i'm going crazy trying to find a supplier of printed lining fabric (e.g. polka dots, animal prints...)

i bought some a few years ago, it's purple snakeskin (yum hehe) but i just can't find any more anywhere...

anyone got any tips?

My favorite local fabric store (Mill Ends in Portland, OR) has a few... mostly this one company that makes lining with cute patterns, but also their name all over it.  If only I could remember the name...  I'll post it next time I go there.

Also, I've used lingerie fabric as lining with some success; it tends to come in more muted designs and lacy stuff, though.

(yay for Mill Ends!!)

Would printed cotton be suitable?  Because if so, you would have millions of choices.

For lining, the baby flanellettes are sweet deals. You can score some dots,s ome stripes and the most awesome animal prints ever.

As an added bonus, it's generally one of the cheapest fabrics out there.

I wouldn't recommend it for doing much other than lining. I've made a few goodies from it and the seams don't last.
