    Fabric with sunglasses or Spectacles

    I am an Optician, look for fabric with either sunglasses or spectacles on it. Color isn't so important, but the print has to be small since I am working on a small project. Has anyone seen anything like that? Thanks for your help!

    There's fabrics with just about anything on ... so I'm sure that you'll find it!

    I have no direct suggestion, but would recommend Mr. Google ... try some different combos of words and I'm sure you'll land on a site where you will find it!

    Good Luck!

    You had me curious and I did some googling ... I haven't found a source, but there was/is an Alexander Henry Fabric called Shades.

    The link that QuiltNNan gave you ... you can also have fabric custom made to your liking. Perhaps with your business name on it?

    Thank you for your suggestions!! I only need a little - less than a yard. I'll let you know if I find the perfect fabric.

    I have some sunglasses on a pink background in the tote for I spy quilts. I will look for it tomorrow and post a picture with a ruler for scale.

    Thank you everyone!! I am always so amazed at the helpfulness of the people on this forum! I found the perfect fabric. I am making little key straps as gifts for my fellow opticians when I retire - in 85 days!! I should have enough fabric left to piece some into a quilted tote bag for my own memories.

    Good for you .. how thoughtful to "gift" everyone on your retirement!

    Sooooooooo does this mean that in 86 days we'll start seeing more of you here on the Boards?
    Hope so!
