Spoonflower Fabric

Have you heard of Spoonflower? It’s a great site that lets you design your own fabric and have it printed. I wasn’t too familiar with it until my sister asked me to design a specific print for a quilt for her baby girl that’s soon to arrive. At the same time, I thought I might as well design something for my own little bundle.
I’d say that my sister’s fabric turned out exactly as we wanted it. The colors came out beautiful and I love the simple design. Can you guess what she’ll be naming her baby?
Since I have a thing for bunnies, I wanted to create a design of bunnies filled with random/vintage-y prints and colors for a quilt. The colors didn’t all print as I had hoped (surely as a result of my own inexperience), but overall I think I’m happy. Ya know when you’ve looked at something for so long and so many times that you don’t know what to think anymore? That’s kind of the point I’m at with it.
If you look closely, the orange bunny has a pink pattern within it, and the brown has little purple clouds, but you’d probably miss the details if you weren’t looking for them or happened to be squinting at the moment. It was definitely a learning experience though, and I’ll know some things to do differently for next time!

I do highly recommend Spoonflower though. They have excellent customer service, and the design possibilities really are endless. You can also purchase other designers’ fabric on their site – but just know you’ve been warned, there are some amazing prints that you may not be able to resist :).


I’ll be sharing the finished projects soon!

  5. Spoonflower is FAB (and dangerous, hahaha). How did you design the fabric?

  6. Happy in Red – I used Photoshop, which is great for simple designs, but Illustrator of course would be better suited for fabric design :).
