I finally decided to sit down and see what this "Spoonflower" thing was all about. Ok, it's amazing!
It's fabric that anybody can make! You can make up any design! Anything. Now I know what you're thinking. I'm not really into designing my own fabric. I wouldn't know where to start. Ah but are you into photography? Scan in some family photos, doctor them a little and you could upload them to Spoonflower order the fabric and make family photo ties, totes, handbags! How about everyone gets a Stocking with their FACE on it! Or say you have a favorite toy (or you kids, or your husband) take a photo, make the pattern repeat (a function they have on their site) and next thing you know - a customized pillowcase.
One nice feature is you can make your design private, so if the picture is not one you want everyone to see you can control that.
Another cool thing is patterns! Type in skirt pattern or dress pattern into the search box and you'll get lots of preprinted patterns (cut it out sew it up!) For everything from the solar system to 18" doll clothes!
I am so excited about this. Hmmm, I'm already thinking how can this help me with my plot to take over the world?
