If you have ever gone searching for cute, organic cotton fabrics in a place like Jo-Ann Fabrics, I am betting you've been disappointed. Stripes and solids. Boring, boring, boring.
You may have better luck at a local, independent fabric store although I have not found much at all here in the Twin Cities area. I called SR Harris, a local fabric outlet and they said they will be getting in a big shipment of organic fabrics next week - but here's the odd thing - the guy I spoke with on the phone asked me "What's all the fuss about organic?" I had to explain to him that organic farming methods are better for the earth. He seemed nonplussed.
Anyway...I was super excited to find this beautiful, hand-designed, organic cotton fabric from daisyjanie on Etsy. If you've read this fabric designer's blog, you know her as Scoutie Girl - she's always scouting out the coolest handmade stuff. I check in with her on a regular basis!
And if you're looking to make home textiles, check out these to-die-for prints on upholstery-weight organic cotton canvas from Mod Green Pod. Cuuuuute!!!
Oh, and the word is out that Betz White will be producing her own line of organic cotton prints. I have no idea when they will be available but I check her blog regularly to keep in the loop!
