I use Windsor Comfort (scroll down close to the bottom). Sometimes Hancock's carries a fabric similar to this. Test any fabric before you buy it. I have seen stuff labeled as "doll fabric" and it runs like crazy.

I got 12 Yards on EBay it seems to firn compared to the original cabbage patch fabric but works well. If you can't get it I can sell you a couple of yards.

I've been using this fabric.. it's the best price on the web that I've been able to find.. and it seems to work great.. I make cabbage patch type soft sculpture dolls. It sells on their website much cheaper than it usually goes for on ebay :)
and if you want some help putting the doll together check out the cabbage patch kid sewing club on msn. http://groups.msn.com/cabbagepatchkidsewingclub/_whatsnew.msnw
there are lots of ladies with tons of experience who can help you out :)

RE: fabric for cabbage patch type dolls

I noticed that a lot of these entries are old. However my question still remains where can I purchase the fabric needed for the Patch-type dolls. I have tried different sites and many will not send a sample. Of those that have, the fabric is too thin and runs when I attempt to do the sculpting. When I did these dolls years ago, I found the perfect fabric at a Walmart fabric department (but they no longer have these). I was able to buy by the bolt, the label is no longer readable or intact. Appreciate any help available.

Hi, try Cr's Crafts. That's where I get my doll fabric from. It's thin just not super thin. Stretches both ways, just has more stretch in one direction. Its called soft sculpture fabric. Hope this helps...
