Howdy,
My "baby" brother just graduated from medical school in May and for Christmas I wanted to make him a pair of scrubs. He's specializing in nuclear medicine so I was thinking along the lines of bones, skeletons, etc. I thought Halloween would be the time to snag this type of fabric but so far I've only seen ghost fabric online (not exactly a confidence builder if you happen to be the patient)...

Anyhooo - do you lovely ladies know where I can score some great manly medically themed fabrics for scrubs?

Thanks!

And search for both skeletons and skulls. Equilter has just added a bunch of bone-related fabrics for halloween and I'm trying very hard not to buy some to make some scrub hats or boxers for DH out of.

Since he is a Rad Tech I tend to collect skeleton/skull fabrics now for him. Is it bad to stash fabric if it is all to make items for someone else?

No! In fact it shows what a good person you are and you should be rewarded for it. I think the one yard for "them," two yards for me formula works well....

Most guys wear solid color cotton-poly. I like poplin to make my scrubs with (though I'm not a guy), and I work 7 12-hour shifts in a row and don't want to iron all those scrubs. Most of my friends buy their scrubs, but they usually buy scrubs they don't have to iron.
Although I usually make my tops out of prints (because my solid-color scrub pants wear out in the inner thighs and it's harder to match a used solid-color top with new solid-color pants) and many female nurses/medical personnel wear prints, most of the guys prefer solid colors or very subdued prints. Guess they don't have the thigh issue. :-)
