    I need to find some fabric with barefeet...not flipflops but barefeet. I've Googled and searched in a few areas and keep coming up with zero. Thanks for any help. :)

    Good luck in your search. Ive never seen any barefoot fabric. Have you tried Bearpawquilting? They seem to have alot of theme fabrics.

    I may be looking for something that doesn't exist but that's hard to imagine.

    No, I just remember the footprints in the sand by the beach. Did you try to google it?

    I will try. It might be a last resort but I really wanted barefeet for the project. Thanks!

    If all else fails, either apllique the feet or print the fabric yourself. Bubblejet does a great job.

    I would think it would be cute to make a stencil of bare feet and stencil the design onto plain fabric. It's not hard at all to make your own stencils out of Mylar or use freezer paper as the stencil. Actually, I would think the freezer paper would work really well because you can iron it onto the fabric, thus there wouldn't be any run-under when using acrylic paints.

    I think you'll have to think about making the fabric yourself. I just spent the last hour and a half all over the web, everywhere I could think of, and came up with a big, fat "zero" for bare feet patterns of any kind. I finally gave up. Sorry.

    The custom print fabric so if you can find a noncopyrighted picture of bare feet, I think you can have them make the fabric for you. More expensive than most fabric but not outrageously expensive

    I found this on Amazon. It is an Andover fabric so you might check those places that sell it, ie, Hancocks of Paducah, Over The Rainbow, fabric.com. Good luck!
