I bought this " Carnival Book " Michael Miller laminted cotton more than a year ago and finally found a pattern small enough for a 3 year old. Problem is not enough. This lamiated cotton does not appear to be in stock anywhere now and at $15 a yeard I hate to toss it. Does anyone know who might have it still ? It's a brown backgrond w/pink and other color flowers.

did you cut the whole pattern out or did you just lay it out?
If you didn't just make it a little shorter then the pattern.

I just found that laminated fabric on Etsy. It is sold by a site called Just Laminates. It is on page 2 and is being sold for $15.00 per yard.
I am not in any way affiliated with this seller but do buy stuff on Etsy.
You do have to be willing to use PayPal. I haven't been able to find the fabric any where else.

Maybe you could just use the same type fabric.. but in a solid color for some of the pieces.. such as the pockets. belts. or the sleeves.. or even a solid back .. with the pattern on the front.. As long as it closely matches it should be fine..

Is there any way you could use a coordinated print with it? Like hood, pockets , or sleeves. Here's a coordinate for $11.99:

FYI I am not affiliated, but I want to assure you you can buy from Etsy without issue...at least I have never had a problem. I love supporting small business, crafters, artists, etc.

I took the exact image of the fabric you posted, and ran it through the Tin Eye image browser here:

www.tineye.com

It came up with 24 hits of webpages (not just fabric stores but anyone at all for any reason) that are right now, using the same image. Just for any old reason. You could do that yourself and check them all out, that might give you some more resources of getting some more of it. That would not be all of them at all though, as if others were taking their own pictures/photo's of the fabric instead of just copying it from another source, the pixels would be way different in those, and probably just the way the little patterns and medallions in the fabric would fill the image too.

I just realised I have some of the brown-pink dotted Michael Miller I bought at the same time for a diaper bag .However it has a dull finish not the shiny like to Carnival Bloom. I hate to pay ETSY price but mjay have too since I already cut it out and am missing one front panel and one sleeve.
