Let’s put all our favorite fabrics for making dolls, puppets, plushies, and stuffies all in one place…Right HERE.
Where to find the fabrics?
These are a small selection of places to shop. The majority are places where I shop. Some are places I’ve heard great things about and will shop there in the future. (And one – Fat Quarter Shop – is an affiliate link where I shop for hard-to-find cotton prints because they carry ALL the big fabric designers.)
