Make It Your Own

Spoonflower.com is one site that caught my eye several months ago.  The site lets you design your own fabric by just uploading pics.  This pillow, which I found in Country Living, uses fabric designed on Spoonflower!  With the Spring coming up, there will be many opportunities even for us novice sewers to use fabrics.  How special to use ones that you dream up yourself.  It's super easy!  The site gives you step by step instructions AND you can order a sample swatch for $1 before you invest in more to see if you like the pattern.  Material sizes range from fat quarters to yards, yards, and more yards.  I think the price is competitive with the local fabric chains.  By the way, you can even buy designs by others.  WIN-WIN!!!

Thanks for the website Marilyn I will have to check it out as I love designing and sewing but sometimes don't have enough time myself to do it. Beautiful cushion by the way, love the way it's so simple but fresh. Have a good day.

P.s I love the background noises on your blog how do you do that??
