Mystery Fabric

I’m about to show my utter lack of knowledge of fabrics.  I found this at a sale today.  Nice pink print on the front and on the back, almost like mole-skin.  I’m not sure what it is.  It’s very thick but pliable.  Any suggestions?

  • Interesting fabric. My guess is going to be an upholstery fabric, but it’s just a guess. I love this blog by the way.

  • Hello!
    The right side of the fabric looks very close to being flannel. Do you think the back side feels more like fleece than mole-skin? I’m asking because this fabric could be fleece-backed flannel. Take a look at this large image of a swatch of flannel from

    Do you think it resembles yours a bit? I hope you will solve this mystery soon!

  • yes, it could feel like very short pile fleece. the print side after closer inspection does resemble denim. I’m fascinated with this fabric and need to find something to make with it.

  • You described denim on the outside and a soft fleece on the inside.

    I am thinking that it might have been intended for toddler’s clothes – my granddaughter has some overalls that have a nice soft lining, but a durable outer fabric.

    And your fabric has a very childlike print. Just a guess.
