Am looking for 1 yard/metre of camouflage fabric suitable for overalls for child. Want a smaller pattern, I think its called urban or city, blue/greys, or will go for a woodland, which is green/browns. But don't want the realistic trees fabric, or the desert camo which is a very large tan/brown print. I have looked in almost every fabric store in the lower mainland and can't find any except the odd fleece piece. Anybody have a piece laying around or know of somewhere on-line that is reasonable in cost (especially shipping!!!) Laura

I was at Joann yesterday and saw exactly what you are talking about.
I only shop online at and they only have flannel, fleece and rib knit in camo right now. I also don't know if they ship to :Canada:. If you are not in a big hurry for this fabric and they will ship to you; you should check back there at least once a week as they are constantly adding new fabrics. I have bought several different types of camo from them over the years.

Well I can certainly wait a bit for it, I actually just bid on some on ebay so will see if that comes through, although we are planning a shopping trip down to Bellingham to Joanns in the next month, so that may be an option. Thanks, will keep a watch out as I get Joann coupons all the time and their emails. Since the store is so close, it's quicker for me to order and have it sent to the store and go and get it.

Urban is either Black/white or blue/lite blue. there there is the green cammos

Are you looking for a knit or a cavas weight or a lite weight denim.

I found pink, grey and white camo in Walmart, but you never can count on what they have, even the next day!
