    well after hours of doing web searches for camera fabric (with pics of still cameras, not movie cameras) I finally hit pay dirt! and will I ever have to pay if I get it. My son is graduating in May with a major in Photography which is the reason I have searched for this fabric. But, at this price ($18 a yard!!!!) not so sure I should. I was thinking about ordering the min I would need to make a quilt for him - using it as the focus fabric so would not need to much - maybe get by with a yard - and using blends or something to bring out the colors in the fabric itself.

    I have to say I have enjoyed looking at the fabrics on this website tho - they have so much odder stuff - alice in wonderland, goldilocks, vw bus, etc etc. Fun to look at even if not to buy! I think tho it is nice if you need to find just THE PERFECT fabric for someone special!

    link is: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/366833


    also wanted to add but whatever member was looking for kitchen gadget fabric - there is some in the vintage section of that website!

    That website is not safe for fabri-holics!!! You can upload your own pictures or drawings and they will create fabric!! The possiblities boggle the mind. I must not bookmark.....I must not bookmark...... :shock:

    I could be wrong, but I think that's the site that let's you make yor own fabric. Most of it is custom, hence the price.

    Can't help you with the camera fabric, but I found an eBay listing with two yards of film reel fabric.

    Okay, so everything is digital nowadays, but I think it would make real cool sashing or border for a photography themed quilt. And a lot cheaper than the camera fabric (little under $8 with the shipping)

    My only problem with custom printed fabric is that they state to wash on delicate...warm or cool. I'm afraid my recipient would not wash a quilt on delicate and the pictures (that I paid dearly for!) would wash out. Anyone have any experience with this? I really want some Marily Monroe fabric :(
