    I used to. Mainly, I'd buy apparel fabric at local stores. Joannes etc.

    I sew for my grandkids all of the time! I get fabric at Joanne's, Hancocks or this little Mexican store down the street. My husband said it's a fire trap, but they have GREAT prices!

    thanks a lot. But sitting in Switzerland I am looking for an online shop.
    In particular I would like to have cotton jerseys and interlock

    When I'm sewing for kids (now grandkids) I always just shopped for fabric wherever I could find it. Only fabric I've purchased online has been through this board. You might try Joann's online, but I'm not sure what they have in the way of knits.

    I do sew for kids, but I haven't bought any fabric online that is for their clothes. I actually use a lot of quilting cottons for thier clothes, and everything else comes from Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby, or a local store.

    At some point I remember running across an online store with really cute kids' knits, but I can't remember the name, and apparently I didn't bookmark it.

    Yep, try to keep to the simple patterns so its quick otherwise might as well go out and buy it finished, do try to keep it in now colors, and a some of the older patterns can be used, no matter what year they were made in. Right now have a gathered skirt to do in pink skelatin (spelling;) fabric, this little one is excited when ever I sew for her, prissy little thing, thinks I'm her personal seamstress. :)
