Grab your sketchbook!

by Nicole of Designs by Lulubelle

Reading through some of my usual craft blogs a while back, I found myself often reading about a new site, currently in beta, called Spoonflower. Spoonflower gives individuals and artists the opportunity to print their own designs on fabric that they can then use to make quilts, clothes, pillows, handbags, and other works of art.

I'm frequently sketching ideas I'd love to see on fabric and Spoonflower may be the way to make this happen. Although, I won't be seeing my name on the selvedge of a fabric bolt any time soon, it may be fun to see a swatch or a fat quarter with my own design.

An invitation is required during the beta phase, but I'm looking forward to seeing my ideas in print. Who knows, maybe there will be a few "limited edition" gifts under the tree this holiday season.

The current prices for fabric at Spoonflower are:
Swatch (8" x 8") $5.00
Fat quarter (21" x 18") $11.00
Per yard (42" x 36") $18.00
There is also a blog if you are interested in learning more.

Have fun designing!


  1. That is a great idea. I wish I had a sewing machine. How fun is that to have your own fabric
