Where is the best place online to buy cute kids fabric?  I am starting to sew again and would like to make my baby girl some simple dresses but all the fabric round here is a little dull! I would love to find some hello kitty type fabric and other funky maybe vintage kiddy fabrics?

Any ideas would be great, TIA!

Etsy is a great place to find unique fabric for kids clothes.  I love browsing thru the japanese import fabric because it is so much more ecclectic than what's available in Jo-Anns or Wal-mart.

I've actually never bought any off of etsy.  I just secretly lust after some of the stuff on there....  Wink  I'm a closet-Etsy-holic.

Here are two of my favorites


I also belong to a yahoo coop that has great designer fabric for wholesale prices
if you search for joyofsewing through yahoo groups it will take you to it.

It really depends on what style you like in fabric. As far as good places to get quality designer fabric for good prices I buy from www.fatquartershop.com I get good clearance finds there. www.sewmamasew.com also has good clearance finds plus an assortment of great full price fabrics that I look at but never buy. I have used etsy numberous times. You can find good bundle deals there where they have already put together 2-3 fabrics that coordinate and sell them in 1/2 or yard lots. I have used downshadowlane and fabricworm there. All my etsy stuff has come REALLY fast. Also I would look for a quilting store in your area if you have one. I have one that I frequent and while 70% of the fabric there I would never buy (geared to the sr. quilting crowd) it is a great place to get good clearance deals without having to pay shipping. Lots of times I find kids fabric on clearance there since they sell less of it. I have stopped buying actual yardage at Walmart becuase there was such a big difference in the quality I could get there. Plus it is like pulling teeth to find someone to cut for you. I do get all my ribbon, bias, and notions there since they are the cheapest. Rolls of grosgrain are way cheaper there than what I can find elsewhere.

May our efforts reflect our values.
May the variety in life bring us joy.
May we seek to inspire not compete.
May we have happy hearts.
