For those of you who make clothing for your kiddos...

Where do you find the cute fabrics?
I mean online what are your favorite stores?

I really like some of the cute stuff Ive seen on here and HC and Etsy but Im just not in "the know".

Also do you have any favorite patterns that can be purchased online?

We probably wont be making much but it would fun to find somethings really cute to sew for her.

My dh is the one that sews, sewing is so intimidating for me.

I shop Ebay, Fabrics.com, ConnectingThreads.com (cotton wovens and flannel), Joanns, (I would shop Hancocks but there are none close... If I happen to travel,I'll go to one) Walmart (gasp... on occasion), and quilt shops.

Nature's fabrics is a good one for fabrics, as is fabric.com, thefabricfairy.com and sewzannes.com

As for patterns, I really like Fishsticks. Her instructions are wonderful.

Are there certain manufacturers/designers that anyone likes or do you just choose what catches your eye?

I picked out a cute girly cotton fabric that had owls and other birds at joann's, but it's hard to find anything unique there, not a ton of choice.

Ive never really seen much at our walmart, tons of fleece and flannel though. We mostly shop at HEB now for groceries so I dont go to walmart much.
Im not a snob though.

Just hard to find the super cute and unique stuff locally.
