    Gauze for baby blankets

    I am going to be a great-grandma and am sewing up a storm! I would like to make some receiving blankets in double gauze. Also interested in those baby carrier things made of double knit. Any ideas where I can order these fabrics.
    TIA

    Fabric.com has the double gauze. They also have a lot of knits, but I'm not sure what would be useful for baby carriers.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Just a comment about fabric.com. I ordered from them for the first time a few weeks ago (wide backings). I must say I was very impressed. The fabrics arrived looking exactly like what was on my computer monitor (my greatest fear of online shopping); fabric quality was excellent; price was great. Had my order in 2-3 days vs the 5-7 that was originally stated in their order confirmation.

    I'm considering order some other non-quilting fabric from them as well as soon as I get some other projects completed.

    Thanks NJQ, good to know and glad to hear you had a great buying experience with fabric.com.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    It is a heavier (thicker) gauze which is very stretchy. It is used to make swaddle blankets and even some lightweight blouses.

    I visited MSQC late last year and they had a large selection of the double gauzeó-really cute prints. Have fun being a ggm.

    I found some really nice double gauze at Wally World... and cheap too. I made swaddle blankets/nursing covers out of them, for my daughter and DIL. Also burp cloths. The young mamas really love this gauze.
