the gingham! I've gotten quite a few inquiries as to where I get mine from my previous post. Enough that I figured I'd make a little post about it. Wanna hear it, well here it go.....
Most of what I have is Japanese, which I've managed to acquire from several places around the web. This gingham is almost always 100% linen or cotton.
Etsy Sellers I recommend:
Matatabi - Francis has some chocolate linen gingham here. I know, are those three words allowed to be together? Chocolate, linen, gingham? Trouble.
A Little Goodness - Leslie's got some lovely reversible gingham with polka dots on the back! More trouble.
Talk to the Wind - Lot's here too. More reversible with dots.
Cotton Blue - Some gingham fabric, as well as linen gingham ribbon.
Cotton Break - Some black and white here.
SaucyLouise - A few with smaller checks.
Down Shadow Lane - Not Japanese, but big lovely gingham checks to be had here.
and of course we all know Superbuzzy.
Then there is the non-Japanese gingham that I've acquired. It's really difficult to find 100% cotton gingham here in the US. There are few places to buy 100%. Usually what you find is a PolyCotton blend, mostly polyester and a little cotton. *shudders* I refuse to use synthetics. I'm quite threadjudiced indeed!
Ebay - Sometimes you can score some nice ginghams here, in fact I've gotten most of the cotton fabric from here. You can bid or you can 'buy it now'. Be sure to read the listing thoroughly and see if it is a blend or 100% cotton. If it doesn't say then ask the seller.
These other places have gingham as well(some polycotton if you don't mind):
Fabric.com - Heaps!
Fabric Direct - 1 inch checks here
Vogue Fabrics - They have some flannels too! Mmmm....flannel.
Warm Biscuit - Great shop, 2 yard minimum though.
I hope that helps. Now go get your ging on! ^_^
If anyone has other places to add, please comment.
Share your knowledge, homie.
