Design Your Own Fabric!


So you’ve been on our site and looked at 1, 10 or maybe even 100 prints from our vast array of assorted fabrics. You’ve seen some you liked, some you loved and some you could do without. And more than likely, somewhere in between our novelties and decorative fabrics, you caught yourself picturing what a print from the wells of your creative imagination would look like.

Maybe you have a little girl who is turning five, and for her birthday she tells you that she wants to be an astronaut when she grows up. You go out and buy the glow-in -the-dark stars and a mystical space sounds tape to make her night life more adventurous. You collect globes, spaceships and Star Trek figurines in hopes to nurture her passion (until a new one comes along a six), but what she really wants is an image of a little girl that looks like her, steering that infamous space shuttle into the unknown galaxy of ‘Little Hannah’. So you search for the perfect fabric to make the curtains and bedding that would send your girl to the moon with excitement, only to find your search is in vain.

In disappointment you shut down your computer, put away the phone book and call off the search; wishing that a magic Genie would come along with the exact print image, in the exact favorite colors and the exact weight that you want so desperately. And while the he is at it, maybe he can create a printed fabric bearing all the characteristics and personality traits of a 1942 Pisces as well. I mean, that was the year you were born, and everyone knows Pisces are the best Zodiac sign of them all.

Well, your wish is our command!

If you could wish for 3 unique-one-of-a-kind-nobody-has-a-more-creative-imagination-than-you prints, what would they be? Hot Latina Pin-up Girls, TV shows from the 70’s, Tabby Cats and Hound Dogs playing cards? You can see some patterns like this in our Retro Fabric section.

We’d like to hear from you, so email us back or reply to this post with your crazy and not so crazy print ideas…you never know what wishes the J&O Genie may grant you!
If you want to see some fun fabrics to get your creative mind going check out our quilting fabrics and decorative fabrics.

    I love geometric Damasks and lattice prints, but they are always only two colors; lime green and aqua blue, red and purple etc. You rarely see a print with these four colors together. if you do it’s some formal floral. I would love to see something where one kind of over-lays the other… for example: a green lattice on white background with splashes of damask shapes in mixes of purple and red green and aqua… and where they take turns being on top of the layer…

    Could you possibly make a basic cotton fabric with this nightmare before christmas design on it, below is the web adress

    The nightmare before christmas is a licensed design and you would need to get approval from the artist before trying to get this pattern made. It is an excellent suggestion and if more people would like this design then it would be a great pattern to move forward with.

    Thanks for your input!!!

    Just an idea now with the internet being vastly popular and people being able to create custom ties, pillows and other objects from images they upload maybe you could get a online tool to add to your site where people could create from images what they want? check out http://www.zazzle.com to see what I am talking about I guess because other then printed t-shirts you can make ties just from an image and i’m wondering if you can do the same with other fabrics then it would be awesome to let your customers use thier creativity even more

    Bingo fabrics would be great. There are few out there and what is there is very boring.

    I own a winery and my mother makes quilted purses. For the life of me, I can't find a cute, girly fabric with wine glasses – I'm picturing something with a black, pink or white background with cute wine glasses and maybe other wine related things that with maybe a cute wine saying here or there…ya know, something that twenty-something girls would like…

  13. Michelle says:

    A star trek fleece would be nice. I would really like to make a blanket with the ties around it for him but can’t find star trek fabric or fleece anywhere that is in stock. Thanks.

  16. HarEm says:

    I would love some star trek fabric — cotton preferred. Something with the ships or DS9 station or the various phasers and communicators. That would be fabulous!!!

  17. hope says:

    Star Trek-me too, please! Especially Deep Space Nine & the wormhole!

  18. Celtic says:

    I would certainly buy an Nightmare Before Christmas (NBC or NMBC) fabric you would make. I want to make about 6 quilts. I LOVE the movie, as does five of my friends. All of us are absolutely obsessed with the movie. (We collect anything we can find that has or is Nightmare Before Christmas related.) If you print the fabric it will sell.

  20. KC says:

    I’m going to school to become a nurse and my mom wants to make me some scrubs, and my favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. But you can’t find NBC material any where. I would love to see various patterns involving Jack, specifically, please.

  21. Amber says:

    I would really love to see fleece that is either black with red and white polka dots (can vary in size) or red with black and white polka dots.

  22. melany says:

    nightmare before christmas!! i’ve looked everywhere and can’t find any….anything with jack would be amazing please

  23. Sue says:

    I would love fleece fabric with summer, beach themes like flip flops, surfboards and sunglasses. We people here in Florida love the fleece blankies too in the winter. Even if we don’t use them much. I’ve had ALOT of requests for fleece like that.

  24. Kristen says:

    I’m searching for fleece with (high school style) wrestling design. Can’t find anywhere. Not even fleece with the word WRESTLING. Help!!!
