I'm having a hard time googling this one, since "calico" is also a kind of fabric!

I'm wanting to make a kigurumi pajamas that looks like my own tortoise shell kitty, but I can't find calico print fleece, or any fabric, for that matter.

Anyone happen to know of a place that would sell such a fabric?

You might be able to find a similar camo fabric

Try looking for "tortoiseshell" fabric -- I would call your cat a dilute tortoiseshell rather than a calico. (Tortie is a dark-based calico with little or no white; the standard is black/brown with orange patches, and the dilute is grey with orange patches like your cutie).

It's a long shot but it'll help you weed out the calico fabric. :P

My cat could have been from the same litter as yours! We have a 'woodland' camo throw blanket someone gave us years ago. When she sits on it she COMPLETELY disappears. I second looking for a camo fleece (try searching Mossy Oak or RealTree brands).

Great ideas, thank you everyone! :)
