    This fabric is called Coming At You in 3-D by Hoffman. I have been making pillowcases for my Grandchildren using my pattern since 2007 and thought I have done pretty good choosing the coordinating fabrics. I have orders for pillowcases from ladies in town but one of the ladies does not want bright fabrics to go with the butterflies--well the butterfly fabric is bright. I made one using a yellow with white dots but I am not sure about the pink/peach small trim. Please let me know what you think. Anyway, I am posting photos--hope they come through.
    I forgot to tell you that when you look through 3-D glasses the images pop right off the fabric--Really cool.

    Okay, what about the green with yellow trim. I just laid it the green on top--not sewn yet.

    I like the brighter ones better. I don't see any pink in the butterflies, so maybe you could replace the pink on the next one with a darker color from the butterflies. I really love the one with the planets.

    There is actually Hot Pink in the a couple of the butterflies. I did have a green with the yellow but there is so much green it just washed out. Also, tried all the lighter blues and it just looked like it did not belong. I just don't know what else to try. Maybe if I could find something for the band and use the yellow as the trim. These samples are going to be small travel pillowcases.

    I love them all except the pink trim. Maybe try a deeper/brighter pink?
