[DYOF @ Spoonflower]

Design your own Fabric at Spoonflower.

Had you ever thought of designing your own fabric?  In Art School I learned how to make a pattern using Illustrator and I remember Phototshop being involved somehow as well... Instead you can go to Spoonflower where you can either make your own design and buy as little as a yard or look at the zillions of other patterns available. 

Here are a couple of patterns I like. Clicking on the swatches will take you directly to their Spoonflower page. 

Love Fiesta by Sammy K

Poppies by C'est la viv


Tattooed Together by Heidi Kenney
Make your own doll.
I think I'm going to have to dig up some of my own watercolors and drawings to see what I can come up with for a pattern.  In the meantime check out these unique patterned fabrics for making quilts, pillows, clothing- whatever you desire!!
