Where to buy leopard print fabric

Buying fabric used to be a labourious task involving hours of delving through piles and piles of different fabrics and different lengths. Now, things are much simpler and you can find all sorts of fabrics for sale in a range of different locations. This article looks specifically at where to buy leopard print fabric which is popular for many reasons, although the locations can be used for almost any fabrics.

Ebay

Ebay is a goldmine for people who are looking for fabric to buy. You can benefit from the fact that both established companies and individual sellers operate from eBay and this give you a huge range of sellers to choose from. Some companies are able to offer their fabrics at incredibly low prices, given the reduced costs of trading over Ebay as opposed to trading in a shop. Make sure that you carefully assess which fabrics you are buying, including the measurements and cuts, in order for your request to be put through properly.

Car boot sales

Car boot sales give you a great chance to pick up some bargains. Many people bring their unused or previously used (but good condition) fabrics to boot sales as sending them off through eBay or a similar site can be quite awkward with high postage and packaging costs. "Car booters" will also be able to advise you about which fabric is best for what because they probably have had experience of using this very fabric themselves.

Fabric shops

If you have specific requests, then going to a fabric shop is a great idea. Getting advice from professional fabric cutters and those who work in the industry could make the difference between a good and an excellent fabric project. Many fabric shops have specialised sections and if you look into the animal section, you may be able to find not only leopard print, but zebra print fabric or giraffe print fabric. Animal print fabric is popular, given that you can make all sorts of things, ranging from animal print cushions to animal print curtains, and all at reasonable prices.

Independent designers

If you have very specific requests, then you can contact independent designers who will happily prepare you a design which you have cut professionally at another fabric shop, or at their own workshops.
