Do you Spoonflower?

The other week at My Creative Space I loved this fabric design by Flower Press. I think it is really difficult to find nice 'boy' fabrics (although I would also use this for girls) so marbles as a spot pattern are genius (she has a giveaway this week too!)


The post led to me rediscovering Spoonflower.com, the amazing website where you can upload your own fabric design (either graphic or photo) and then they make your design in the fabric of your choice. You can also choose from thousands of other designs by Spoonflower users who have made their fabrics public.

Every week there is a design competition, voted on by users, and the entries are so clever - this 'Wondersquid' design won a recent 'Squid'-themed competition, and I also love this 4th ranked design, 'Ghostly Squid Damask' that made me think of Aimee's lily pad damasks.

The current competition, Project Selvage, is co-sponsored by designer fabric house Michael Miller, and you can vote on the 75 semi-finalists here. The winner gets to design a collection for Michael Miller! The set theme was 'baby fabric for boys', and I voted for:


If you have ever ordered from Spoonflower or entered a competition, please let me know how you got on, I am absolutely fascinated by it!

  2. hi there, I just discovered this post and saw it mentions me! Yes, I spoonflower and I'm pretty happy with the results. my advice would be to get a yard of their colour samples before you start choosing colours, as screen and actual printing colours can differ a lot. the only issue I have is how long it takes to get here to NZ from the states, I waited about 3 weeks for my most recent order!
