a POLKA party

a POLKA party

We've got dots, "big ones, little ones, tall ones, short ones" (love Dr. Seuss!) lots and lots of dots.


So, today I'm doing a comparison of all the polka dot fabric.  Maybe ALL is a tad too strong, I didn't include fabrics that are dotty but not JUST polka dots.  Strike that, I'm an equal opportunity dot lover so I've just snapped some more pictures!  Plus it looks like I forgot a couple, boy I sure am glad I made another pass looking for more dots :-)  So, get out your measuring tape and let's do a little dot-to-dot.


The big STENZO dot (comes in lots of colors) is the largest polka dot we have, measuring 1 1/4"

French dot shown in Aqua measures 1 1/8"

Stenzo colored dots on white poplin are still big at 3/4"

TaDot by Michael Miller measures 7/16" (just under 1/2")

Busilis KNIT, shown in orange and yellow,  is 3/8" (smack in between 1/4" and 1/2")



Busilis POPLIN is 5/16" (just over 1/4")

Stenzo KNIT dots (all excepting that one on the bottom in pink and aubergine are 1/4"

Small French Dots in Aqua and lime are also 1/4"

Stenzo pink/aubergine knit, Stenzo green/pink cord and Tiny Dots are all 3/16" (half of 1/4")


Dotsmisc Going down this picture one at a time:

Dream Dot: 3/4", 1 1/4" and a whopping 3 1/2"

Kaufman cord dots 3/8"

Vintage Dots1/2"

Meadow Dots 9/16" to outter ring of the larger dot and 1/4" for the supporting dot

Martini 11/16" and 7/8"

Happy Dots 3/8" including the outer ring of the "larger" dot and 1/8 for the supporting dot.


My hope is that by seeing all these dots together and having detailed
measurements, selecting the right dot for your creation will be a snap!
