Okay...I don't usually do this...but I'm gonna beg for fabric!! I will pay/trade/whatever! Here's my story...

My friend's mother (who was a quilter) made these needlepoint stockings for each of her granddaughters. There are 4 girls. The youngest girl never got a stocking, the grandmother got sick, and died. I had offered to make the youngest daughter a stocking myself. While my friend was cleaning out her mother's belongings...she found this needlepoint top...it has the youngest daughter's name on the top. (get out your tissues!! cry2 )

Sooo, now the friend has asked me to finish it like the other's have been finished. They have a coordinating corduroy (small wale - is that what it's called?? it's thin lines) fabric on the backs of them. I have been searching for this blue color...but not finding it. I had several people show me on line options, but they just don't look right. I need about 1/3 of a yard (maybe less...but it's a big stocking!) and I want it one piece.

So, anyone stashing corduroy you will never use???

Much appreciated for looking!!

Good luck. If you don't get an exact match, I would suggest using a different color that is already there.

I have lots of corduroy but while looking did not find any solid blue. I am headed to the store for orange fabrics today (for pumpkins). I will look for blue cord.

Thank you ladies. I went to to JoAnn's yesterday and they had a much larger selection of corduroy than they did last time. So, I bought some blue that I think will work.

I appreciate you all looking.

That makes me feel better. I did not find any that wasn't a print.
