Best place to find batik fabrics?

I'm looking to find some fabrics to make RS's for three of my friends and a few for myself. I love the tie-dye batiks with the swirls and the blending of the colors and stuff. The only thing I'm finding is flannels and I didn't flannels were good for ring slings as it stretches out over time.

Any ideas as to where I can find this material that's safe to use as ring slings? Thanks mama's!

I found mine at JoAnn's on sale, I got about 4 yards altogether and it's a tiny bit stretchy, just enough to make it good for a RS. WalMart carries some too.

Oh my gosh! I have a TON of it that is just sitting around with no place to go! Want it? LOL

I don't recall how many yards I bought but it's a whole lot of batik! Two different designs
