    I have posted about my 3-D fabrics for making pillowcases and got so many helpful opinions that I thought I would try it with the Pirate fabrics. I am making pillowcases and just don't know what to put with these fabrics--Please help.
    The first 2 are made by different manufacturers but I thought with something in between for the trim piece of the pillowcase that it might work--first one for body of the pillowcase and the second one for the band. I am laying out fabrics taking photos and will post later. Thank you in advance.

    I can't seem to find anything to go with the maps fabric. All I have available is Timeless Treasure Marble Mania and solid black and solid red Kona cotton.

    I like the one with the red, and couldn't you use some brown or tan blender for the top on the brown one with a black strip? Just a thought.

    Cute fabrics! I like the case with the red trim. It really makes the boats pop. I saw some really cute skull & crossbones fabric at bugfabric.com that might work with the tan map fabric.

    lauriejo--I was going to order the skull and cross bones too but it did not blend at all. Basically I ordered this fabric for a customer who is a teacher and her school's mascot (not sure that is the correct word) is the Pirates and she wanted this for her bulletin boards.

    I haven't seen 3-D, that sounds cool. What about board fabric, you know like walking the plank?

    I love the map fabric with the browns & black trim. Looks very masculine

    What about some stripes to go with the map fabric?

    I have to use what I have available so I am a little limited. If I could find something to go with them I could order more bolts but so far I have not seen anything.

    I think I am grasping at straws with this fabric.
