Hello there again!
For those of you who are crazy dog ladies and considering joining us in our sewing challenge, I wanted to share some cool dog fabric that I’ve found. Carlee has already shared some super cool fabric ideas from Spoonflower. She even paired up patterns with fabric ideas! How cool is that?
I, however, am a girl who fancies dresses (yes, and skirts!). I’ll be sewing up a dress (or maybe two!) this month and a nightgown with my doggie fabrics. And yeah…. I’ll be making something for the dogs as well. More on that later in the month. For now, I’m happy to share some super cool dog theme fabrics that would work for dresses, skirts and blouses as well as bags or any type of accouterment to profess your love your best friend.
This “Frenchie” print Japanese kokka cotton voile is one that I’ll be making a dress out of. It’s labeled as French Bulldogs, but a lot of the dogs resemble Boston Terriers (of which I have two!), so I surely had to have once I saw it. It comes in three colorways (I own the black one).
If you’re a Scottie lover, you sure are lucky as there a lot of Scottie fabrics, including this fancy Scottie Couture fabric.
If you fancy poodles, here’s another feminine print that’s a wee bit retro.
I really can’t get over how adorably cute this “Dogs in Bowties” fabric is! And look — there’s some Bostons!
This “Doggy Dress Up” fabric really puts a smile on my face! And do I spot both a Boston and a Border Collie? I’m in heaven!
Speaking of funny….
And how about more pugs!
It seems like the cool fabrics featuring bigger dogs are lacking — but here’s one!
I know…. more Scotties! But it’s so cute!
I’ve been having a hard time finding any Border Collie fabric. Several years back they had some beautiful BC fabric with BC’s and flowers that I found at my local Beverly’s Fabrics. I bought that and made my dogs some pillows, but I’ve never seen anything like that again. I did find this fabric on etsy with sheep and a couple of BC’s and have been thinking about getting it. None of the BC fabrics on Spoonflower really speak to me, so I keep looking…..
If you’ve been searching and still haven’t found a fabric with your dog on it, HotDiggetyDog has just about every dog breed in their store! I’ve never ordered from them, but there’s a ton of dog print fabrics on their site.
Note: I am not affiliated with any of the above fabric stores. With the exception of HotDiggetyDog, I have ordered fabric from all of those sellers and had positive experiences.
