That's really cute. I have not seen any similar fabric but I'm wondering if you can find a black and white fabric and dye it how you want. I have a jacket made from a larger print black and white I got from EOS.

I have not seen that fabric, but lots of black and white scribbled looking prints out there. I think you could just use some fabric ink markers to sort of randomly color in selected parts of them. Don't know how you would get a big square of a different color shading on top of them, but there is also stamp pad ink made just for fabrics, and you could maybe use some kind of stamp, or dry sponge with fabric stamp pad ink to do that. I think either of those things, then heat set afterwards would work to color in some areas of a cotton, rayon or silk fabric. I don't think they are going to "take" the same and absorb and stay in and color more synthetic polyester fabric though.
