Animal print fabric has always been popular, and there are so many different animal designs to choose from; they always create a timeless fashion statement for dressmakers to sew garments that they will love for years. Animal prints are seasonless, making them an excellent wardrobe staple as well as a fun interior furnishing look. Here at Fabrics Galore, we have a wide variety of animal fabrics available, but with so many to choose from, we thought we would talk about the most popular animal print fabrics.
Leopard print fabric
Leopard print fabric has always been the most popular animal print staple in any wardrobe, and probably always will be. This fiery print is extremely versatile and can be worn on its own as a stand-out piece, or even as a neutral with other fabrics, looking great with almost any colour palette. It’s been popular since the 1930s and has become a huge fashion trend almost everywhere, in every fashion season. At Fabrics Galore, we adore leopard print, and believe it can be used for a variety of different projects - both dressmaking and furnishing. We currently stock leopard design fabrics in green, pink, purple and red as well as the traditional brown and black. No matter whether you are looking to make tops, skirts, dresses, or even a new facemask, leopard print fabric is always a good choice.
Cat & dog print fabric
Everyone loves their household pets, and with so many fun cat and dog print fabrics to choose from, it’s no wonder these materials are so popular. Once again, they can either be used for dressmaking or furnishing projects and are the perfect print for children and adults alike. At Fabrics Galore, we have dog fabric available which has Border Collies, Old English sheepdogs, Boxers and Terriers within the design, as well as cat fabric which features loads of different types of cats doing crazy cat things- you couldn’t want anything more than that! We often find that these materials work particularly well in children’s bedrooms, especially if they have a love of animals.
Tropical animal prints
If you’re looking for something slightly more exotic for your home, here at Fabrics Galore, we have a wide range of tropical animal prints for you to choose from. With tropical designs featuring monkeys, tigers, geckos and more, all within the tropical rainforest, these patterns are perfect for home furnishing animal print projects and can be used to create cushions, curtains or even lampshades. No matter what you are looking to design, these animal prints would be a wonderful addition to your home if you are looking for an elegant jungle or tropical fabric to complement your interior theme. A monkey fabric is always good for your cheeky monkeys’ bedrooms too!
Bird and Fish Print Animal Fabric
Birds are a wonderful inclusion on any fabric print, as they can be such a versatile design. Bird print fabrics are always popular for upholstery and all home furnishing. From tropical parrots in the rainforest like parrots and flamingoes to the more common garden birds in a gorgeous Cath Kidston print, or seagulls, ducks and hens, there is a pattern for everyone.
Fish print fabrics always bring a lovely oriental or seaside theme to any furnishing or quilting
project and you can find many wonderful fish print fabrics in our novelty quilting fabric range from Koi Carp to Lobster, to fun fish fabrics for children.
