Cool knit fabric for kids wear can be very hard to find. I get asked a lot - "Where do you buy all your cool knit fabric from?"
We used to search everywhere for cool fabric. Now we design our own fabric.
For people who don't know, Knit fabric is generally used for stretchy stuff like leggings, t-shirts and headbands etc and sewn on an overlocker / serger machine.
Well the secret's out - here are a few of my favourite places to buy knit fabric and woven fabrics.
Spoonflower is an online marketplace for really cool and unique fabric located in the USA, where many different designers contribute fabric designs.
There is so much to choose from, you could get lost on their website for many hours.
We used the spoonflower 'organic cotton knit' for our headbands.
Spoonflower have lots of different fabric base options. Then the design is digitally printed on and sent to you.
It can be a pretty expensive option though, for Australians, as the prices are in USD.
