Book-themed fabrics

Earlier this week, I met a couple of lovely ladies from a website called Fabric.com. This website, well…, sells fabric on the Internet and they’ve been doing it for a long time. My initial feeling was ‘that’s great but we’ve got nothing in common’ and then I did a few searches on their site, and started to change my mind.

Did you know there are fabrics featuring designs by some of the biggest names in books and illustration?

There’s Beatrix Potter’s Flopsy Bunny, Eric Carle’s Hungry Caterpillar and lots of Dr Seuss designs.

How fantastic would it be to create a homemade Cat in the Hat quilt or a Thing One, Thing Two cushion?

And you can buy this stuff by the yard? “I’ll have seven yards of Cat in the Hat please.”

Fabric.com should consider adding more classic book covers to their selection – The Catcher in the Rye, Casino Royale, Atlas Shrugged or anything from our 50 iconic book covers feature? They’d go down a storm with needleworking booklovers. (I also found some clever soul, who is clearly flogging is Edward Gorey-inspired fabrics.)
