1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Cute NON-Stretch fabrics? on: March 11, 2018 09:55:32 AM
Hi there! New member here, hope I am in the right place!

I am trying to make a cot-style dog bed for my 70lb dog. My first version was made with a thick Cotton/poly plaid with Medi weight fusible interfacing on the back to provide strength, but it has stretched out a LOT under his weight.

The instructions I am using specify outdoor upholstery fabric, but I'm having trouble finding a cute pattern that doesn't look like patio furniture. Does anyone have suggestions of good designers/brands to check out for cute NON-Stretch fabric, or is there a way to stabilize stretchy fabric so it won't stretch?

TIA

Leslie
