Designing Fabrics With Spoonflower.

Prior to my recent adventure in photography studio proprietorship, I took some time to make some of my own fabric designs with the help of Spoonflower. It was a bit addictive … and I chewed many fingernails while waiting for my fabric package to arrive.

It finally arrived this week, and I couldn’t be happier!

Truth be told, the actual fabrics came out better than I expected. I simply bought a fat eighth of each — to check for design flaws, coloring, etc. — and I loved them all.

The above fabric is titled “The Stache is Back”. I didn’t know I was going to fall victim to this new mustache craze … but I fell for it … and am so in love with my retro ladies wearing staches! I have already used this fabric to sew up some make-up bags (which will appear on Etsy soon).

And here is my “Make Love, Not Evil” design. I have also already cut into this one for some sweet little projects … and I am in love with it. I am a Vader lover … so this fabric is just totally cool in my opinion (though Isaac hates it).

Then, there is this super cool “Vespa Love” fabric … which has already sold on Spoonflower! In fact, I should mention that you can purchase any of my designs right here on my Spoonflower profile page. I receive $1.10 for every yard sold (thank you!).

And lastly, the above fabric, titled “Snowbirds in Love” is my absolute favorite. It was designed using one of my photographs as a backdrop for the birds. I so love it — which is why I have yet to cut into it — I just keep staring at it.

So – have you tried Spoonflower yet? It is SO much fun! Not only can you create your own fabrics, but you can also shop for some amazing, one-of-a-kind designs created by other artists. Check it out.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be showing you some of the goodies I made with the above fabrics. I tend to hang in the studio whenever possible — but am trying to find time to craft (and share) for the holidays.

Chat with you soon!
