So, I'm hoping maybe a pea has some. I would like a yard, but 1/2yd. would do. It has to be this specific one, in flannel.



Anybody? It's for a very special little baby.

TIA

I did see that one, but it says 100% cotton, not flannel. I'll email the seller.

There's such a thing as Harry Potter fabric? Be still, my heart. I may need to take up sewing again.

Not only fabric, but the coolest quilt patterns. Dust off that machine and get going!

Take a look at this one.

I hope you find it! In my search, I read that it hasn't been available since 2002!

ETA: I love that quilt!

I know! My only hope is somebody bought it and has some left. The ebay seller did get back to me and her's is cotton, not flannel. For $20 a fat qtr. Yikes!

Thanks Little BlueBerry, but its cotton, and too small. Good thing I've got a few months.

Thanks mirabelleswalker. I didn't know you could buy fabric on etsy. I looked, but found cotton, not flannel.

What about a cotton top and a flannel backing? I think cotton would be easier for making the quilt top. Just a thought.

I'm not a Harry Potter fan (no reason, just never got into the books)-- but WOW! I can appreciate and love the work that goes into those quilts! What a nice gift! I hope you find the fabric you're looking for. With fabric stores putting out their new winter fabrics recently, hopefully you'll find what you're looking for.

Flannel can be 100% cotton or mixes of fibers. Flannel has to do with the finish of the fabric (been brushed to have fuzzy nap) So the content being 100% cotton doesn't mean it is not flannel. Ask the seller if it is a flannel finish or a woven finish.

After looking at it, I don't think it's made with flannel. If you must have flannel, I'd use it for the backing.

I went to a giant flea market yesterday and happened to think about your quest for that fabric and I looked at every bit of fabric there, and I don't even sew. No luck, but I found other treasures!

The piece in the picture isn't flannel, but that print did come in flannel too. I'm not going to use it for the quilt, but for a couple little blankies to go with it so it does have to be flannel.I won't give up until the last minute!
