in browsing the 'net just now I came across some long john style pjs at nordstrom in a pretty cute fair-isle-ish winter sweater print, complete with reindeer and snowflakes (!).
Has anyone seen such a fabric? A knit would be good, but a woven would be great too (contrast shirt facings! oooh!). I looked over at spoonflower and found a few things searching for "fair isle" but, alas, no reindeer and snowflakes.
I'm beyond wishing for this for this year, but what a stellar stash builder to keep around for wintry sewing projects it would be! Thanks in advance everybody.

Target is selling sheet sets with a red/white fair isle pattern. They cost $20 for al sizes so you could make a bunch of pj's out of king sized sheets

Look at Etsy, a search for reindeer fabric yielded over 400 hits. One
that looks good to me is sold by BlackberryPlaid. (I have no connection to them.)

Try connecting threads. They had six or seven imitation knits last year...one or two might still be around on clearance.

Here is the link: http://www.connectingthreads.com/WinterFun_CD114.html
They have three, and two different colors of each. None just like your model, but snowflake, "bunnies and trees", and Argyle (which looks more like Intarsia than Fair Isle)

wow! thank you a ton! those prints from connecting threads are just what I had in mind, and why I didn't think of searching for "reindeer" (or sheets, duh) is beyond me.
hive mind, to the rescue!
