I have a huge announcement to make, and it’s one that’s been a long time coming:
I’ve taken my unhealthy addiction to Spoonflower to the next level, and I now have a few of my own fabric design collections available for purchase there!
I’ve been waiting on the proof fabrics to arrive, and it’s been NERVE WRACKING! They showed up yesterday!
I may be a little excited about the whole thing.
This all started maybe a year ago or so, when I designed a plaid fabric that looked like the spandex I used on my last figure skating competition dress, back in 1997ish. (Which I have available in a larger print version AND a smaller print version - I love the masks I made from the smaller version!)
Over the past few months, I’ve been developing more designs... and as of today, the first 103 have all been proofed, approved, and are good to go... and there are more coming!
I’m actually super excited to see the fabrics I’ll be designing around the cartoon amoeba doodle I came up with back in high school. I have no idea what the market is for fabric with cute amoebas on it, but it’ll amuse ME, anyway!
Before I get to the photos of everything, you may be asking yourself what Spoonflower is...
How Spoonflower Works
If you haven’t yet fallen down the Spoonflower rabbit hole, here’s the deal:
It’s a HUGE digital print fabric website. You can upload your own designs to print just yourself, or you can make them available for sale - and it’s a HUGE marketplace. Anything you can think of, there’s probably a print of it on Spoonflower!
Because of the way they offer this, not only can you order very small amounts - a yard, a fat quarter, or even a 8x8" test swatch of whatever you like! - you can order any print in a variety of different fabrics.
You can even order it as wallpaper! (Seriously, if you wallpaper anything with my prints, PLEASE send some photos!).
You choose the fabric - or wallpaper! - type from the design page, along with the amount you’re buying.
I tend to buy Petal Signature Cotton, as it’s perfect for making masks as well as various other projects... but that’s far from the only fabric option available.
Spoonflower offers these prints on everything from Satin, Chiffon, Canvas, Denim, and Sport Lycra .. to Fleece, Minky, and Belgian Linen.
They have a full list of their fabrics and pricing here.
Note: The price is inclusive of design. Designers don’t set the price of the fabrics in our collections.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!
When you're on the page for any individual fabric listing, if you scroll to just under the fabric cut options, you'll see this:
Click though on one of those links to see alllll the ready-made options you can buy with that fabric design!
You can get any of my prints as wallpaper, and it shows you what it will look like:
Alternatively, you can get any of my prints done up as ready-made face masks, or buy a kit to make two of your own!
Or if you click through the home decor link to see all kinds of home options: Bedding, table linens, even curtains! Click here to see all the available options in my Symmie and Panthro print
Spoonflower offers bulk discounts on fabric orders, as follows:
10% off orders of 20+ yards of fabric
15% off orders of 50+ yards of fabric
20% off orders of 100+ yards of fabric
The nice thing is that they offer that discount on your cumulative purchase. You don’t need to order 20+ yards of the same thing, as long as it adds UP to 20+ yards.
Which is nice, because it’s really difficult to order just one thing, IMHO. Our stunning personal reusable mask collection is 100% because I have zero chill when it comes to narrowing down my Spoonflower shopping, LOL!
Let’s take a closer look at what I’ve got up so far:
The Plaid Print Fabric
I love bright, ridiculous colours and prints, and I think these plaids are my favourite collection. Most of these initial plaids use the same colours, and can therefor be mixed and matched 🙂
These are all of the plaids, aside from the initial two I linked to above (which were proofed ages ago!).
The Plaids Collection is available for purchase HERE.
The Houndstooth Print Fabric
Houndstooth is so much more fun when you go beyond the traditional black and white print. These are all of the Houndstooth designs that I have available so far (with more on the way!):
The Houndstooth Collection is available for purchase HERE.
The Cat Print Fabric
Lets be real, I have gorgeous cats and they needed to be immortalized in fabric. These first prints feature Panthro and Symmie, and they amuse me to NO end.
Seriously, I’m going to make masks of my cats ridiculous faces. I LOVE it. (Note: The smaller version of the print is featured here - the large print is far too big for masks)
There are going to be a lot more cat prints available in the future. The Cat Print Collection is available for purchase HERE.
The Autistic Pride Fabric
Like almost any business that allows for anyone to upload their designs, Spoonflower is rife with puzzle pieces “for autism”, so I decided to provide some autistic pride designs.
Note: If you’re not sure what the issue with puzzle pieces, I’ve written about it in my “Let’s Talk about the Autism Puzzle Piece” post
... there might have been a little bit of snark involved. I will never understand the need for the “I love someone with autism” shirts, etc. It feels like they want hero cookies for it, and - TBH - really reinforces the idea that it’s a stretch to find us human/loveable/etc.
The Autistic Pride Collection is available for purchase HERE.
The Skating Print Fabric
As a figure skater, of COURSE I had to have a bunch of skating fabric in my first collection.
These are all of my skating themed fabric designs so far, but I have a lot of others in the works. The first round of designs has 4 main themes: White Figure Skates, Black Figure Skates, Mixed Figure Skates and Inline Roller Skates.
The Skating Collection is available for purchase HERE.
The Food & Drink Print Fabric
The first designs in my Food & Drink collection are hops, but there are many more in the works - including some that will pay homage to my citrus obsession!
The Food & Drink Collection is available for purchase HERE.
Great for Face Masks
I have one collection that specifically gathers all of the smaller-print styles in one place.
All of the prints in my "Great for Face Masks" collection are appropriately sized for not only making (or buying ready-made, from Spoonflower) face masks, all of them work well for other smaller-type projects, like my soakers or travel/toiletry/makeup bag gift sets, linked below.
These tutorials not only make great gifts, they are also a perfect excuse to use some of my new fabrics!
Share the Love!
