I'm looking for a fabric with yellow polka dots on a white background to be used in a skating outfit. Ideally it would be a fabric with some stretch in it but could work with something that doesn't have stretch as it is just an accent fabric.

If anyone can point me in the direction of a site that would be great -- I've checked the stores in the Merchant Gallery (found lots of polka dots but not yellow on white).

If anyone has some in their stash that they'd like to send to a new home -- just let me know what you're wanting for it.

TIA

A question? Can you make your own if you do not need too much? I am thinking that if you used a white cotton knit, you could use something like a bingo dabber (I have no idea if they have permanent ink) to make as many yellow dots as you might need.

You could use a stencil too.

That will be my last resort if I can't get my hands on anything -- I would use fabric paint and experiment a bit. Need to find out from the choreographer what kind of a look he is going for.

Thanks for the link -- I've bookmarked it. It will do in a pinch (being 100% cotton).

I'm still looking if anyone finds anything with a little bit of stretch.

Hi..thought I'd never find your post again..!
There's a fabric buying group on Yahoo Groups..actually its 3, as they do so much business there are 2 overflow groups.
Joy Of Sewing-More Joy of Sewing, & I think Sewing3.
I did see a yellow dot on white stretchable material listed. Remembered your request immediately..
I Do Not know much about this group.. they buy, what seems to be nice materials by pre-filling orders for the entire bolt, if they get enough orders in for the specific bolt it gets ordered, if not, its canceled. There are specific dates to order, then its closed.
You order in at least 1 yard minimum increments..postage quotes I've seen so far seem reasonable...as do most of the fabric costs.
As I said.. I've not ordered, so can't personally recommend the site.. perhaps others here can.. in any event..if you're interested, look immediately..the list of orders close frequently.
Hope this helps, & others here are able to advise you in the procedure.
Chris

Thanks Chris

I'll try to check it out (I've not had a lot of luck with Yahoo Groups in the past).

Does anyone know anything about these groups????

Jeanette -- there are no messages in my message center.

Already checked Spandex House, Spandex World and the other one with a similar name in NYC.
