SpoonFlower



In my hunt to find out more about fabric designing, I discovered Spoonflower. This company allows you to print YOUR OWN fabric design. Yeap you read it right. YOUR OWN FABRIC DESIGN (ok,I might be the last person who has heard of this but I am really excited). The even better part is that you don't have to have Illustrator or Photoshop to design your fabric. You just need a scanner! Ok, and maybe some other things. I haven't tried it yet but its on my to do list for this week (with a million other things...hehe).

I wanted to share this with everyone who is interested in doing this. If you have already tried it let me know what you think. I will post a picture of the fabric I eventually design :)

P.S. Don't forget that Lizzy House's ebook comes out today, How to Enter the World of Textiles: For the Quilting Industry. Go to her blog and find out the status on the book. There might be a slight delay but she is working hard to get it online.

  1. Don't forget too- Spoonflower has a weekly design contest and the prize is 2 yards of custom fabric. I haven't entered yet, but I watch them with great interest. One that was held a couple of months ago was for children's clothing- the challenge was to fit all the pieces plus the instructions on one yard of fabric. The winner was an awesome knit wrap top that I really want to order for my little girl once the weather warms up.
