Once in a while, an opportunity arises to give your readers something fantastic. This is one of those.
While I've been sew busy around here lately, I've also spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at all the beautiful fabric designs on Spoonflower. And by beautiful, I mean geeky, and by designs, I mean TARDISes. Because that's how I roll.
In case you aren't familiar just yet, Spoonflower is an on demand fabric printing company that lets you design, buy, and sell fabric designs that perfectly fit what you want, opening up the artisan's world of fabric possibilities immeasurably.
Spoonflower has a plethora of different fabrics on which they can print.
You can pick sizes from a 5x5" test swatch, fat quarters, yards, and many many yards.
You can read about their design guidelines here.
They even have a color chart so you can design in colors that print best with their printing process.
I love this site and spend too much time drooling over the possibilities. You can check out their flickr pool to see what people have done with their fabric.
Would you like to try out some of that creative fabricy goodness? Well, if you would, you'll be happy to know that Spoonflower has deigned to give one lucky Paisley & Pretties reader a $50 gift certificate to use on their site!
