Ultra Suede Scraps

Wow, it has been such a long time since I've worked on my quilt!  I am now getting back into it and I hope to have some photos to share soon.
In the meantime, may I ask you all where you found the ultra suede for the feet?  I only have a Joann's locally and they don't carry it, and I have had no success online.  Well, I guess if I wanted to order the minimum 1 yard at $65 p/y I would!
If anyone has a scrap of a brown or tan ultra suede they would like to sell, I would be very interested!
Thank you,


  1. HI Dorothy, sorry I couldn't talk to you this morning, you should be able to get ultra suede from anywhere that sells teddy making's used for paws, at least that's what I used to use it for..

  2. I found small packets on ebay.

  3. I bought mine at the Applique Academy. One of the vendors was selling assorted packages.

  4. Search the internet for "ultra suede scraps". Here is just one I found:

  5. Nancy's Notions sells (or used to, I haven't checked lately) a package of 25 or so different colors of about 5" ultra-suede pieces.

  6. Hi....check your Thrift Shops....I have found many Untra-suede garments in the ones around here.....such a bargain for all that expensive material at "thrift" prices!

  7. Try finding them in the notions sections as Ultra Suede Elbow Patches. They are used to extend the life of a man's sport coat. I have a package of brown and black that I've had for years. Maybe they still sell them.

  8. Check out Faye Labanaris's web site.
    She sells small packets of different
