I might be completely behind the times here and you guys have already heard about this amazing website, but I recently stumbled upon Spoonflower on my travels through the wide realm of the Internet.
Spoonflower allows you to create custom printed fabric, and search through other people’s fabric also. They sell fabric, wallpaper, gift wrap .. All kinds of things really!
My excitement over finding Spoonflower is quite simple really – I was looking for an easy and attractive way to label my quilts & cushions. I use stickers on the back of cross stitches with my logo, so they’re easy to identify. But all my recent quilt orders recently gone out without a label (I know, it’s a huge faux pas on my part .. moving on)!
I toyed with the eye of embroidering my name on my quilts etc, but decided this wouldn’t be time effective and provide the finish that I was after. I then toyed with self printing my logo onto fabric and stitching it on, but passed on that idea also.
After my recent applique experience, I knew I wanted to applique a small logo onto the back of my quilts and cushions, and in order to do this, I needed to have my logo printed onto fabric.
SPOONFLOWER TOTALLY DOES THAT! And at a price point which is reasonable – EVEN BETTER!!
You upload your logo, picture, words (provided you have the copyright of course). You can make your design smaller or larger, print on different types of fabric, and pick between a sample cut, fat quarters, or yards.
The real winner in this for me is that postage to Australia is so cheap – $4!! That never happens for those of us ordering items in America and having them delivered to Australia.
I’d recommend having a look at Spoonflower, even just to look at their customer fabrics. I believe the designers get a commission fee if you place an order of their designed fabric.
I’ll be receiving my fabric at the end of this month, and I’m SUPER excited!
