I am looking for some denim chambray in grey or pale blue with a palm print design. I have found this but it is the wrong colour. https://www.stoffstil.co.uk/fabrics/denim/denim-blue-with-palm-print-39oz Has anyone come across any on your travels?

Yes I looked at this, if it was for me I would buy this but it is for a mans shirt and he definitely doesn't do shiny.

Why not find a plain chambray (??! :S) and print it yourself??

Should be real easy design to make/find with permanent ink/dye ...

It's more an American type print don't you think? I noticed there are mens shirts for sale in the fabric you are looking for but they are for sale in America and Hawaii.

I saw this too. 316 pages of fabric with palm print designs. You'll need to filter the results or go through the pages to see if there is any printed on chambray?

Looks like an expensive option though with the postage costs but there are some lovely designs on there? I'll carry on googling though for the UK!.

They have some unicorns on chambray and some swallows on chambray. Have included the link to their chambray page just in case you end up going for a plain chambray because they have some lovely chambray on there and you can get it in deep grey and black too!

The above are just some ideas in case you have to revert to a plan b :)

Hahaha!  See, it happens to everyone.  You go onto a fabric website looking for something specific and come away having bought something completely different.    :D
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
