Laura has made a bag* out of her Spoonflower fat quarter. Link. * Must be a colloquialism. Australians will refer to their handbag as their “bag”, whereas I think Americans call their handbag a “purse”. Australians call our wallet our purse…Confused?


Spoonflower have a contest in which the community will vote on a design that they’d like to be able to buy. Only designs submitted specifically for the contest will be eligible and each winner will get five yards of free fabric. Spoonflower will then offer the winning design for sale for exactly a week – no longer – to anyone and everyone through its Etsy shop. Details here. This is a precursor to allowing designers to sell designs through Spoonflower.

If you would like to see what everyone is designing and making with their fabrics – head over to the spoonflower flickr group.

An awesome idea, design and upload your own designs for printing onto fabric. Currently the site is in beta mode but you can register for an account and wait patiently for your invitation. This post has a video showing a how it all works. Link.

Spoonflower gives individuals the power to print their own designs on fabric that they can then use to make quilts, clothes, pillows, blankets, framed textile art and many, many other things that might surprise you.
