Not a spoon full of flour

if you haven't heard yet, you will now. Spoonflower.com allows you to upload your designs to be printed on fabric! Who's a textile artist now? For $18 a yard you too can have your own custom fabric. I was shocked that Kelli hadn't found this site first. I've actually known about it for sometime. I first heard about it on someone's blog (sorry I couldn't remember who and wasn't able to find it) who suggested writing a letter to a new baby, having Spoonflower print it on fabric, and then making it a baby blanket. I haven't tried it yet, but am itching to. If any one else has tried it please let us know. I'd love to see it.

  2. I love Spoonflower and have been dabbling since August or so...I find that it's a little hard to get colors right but other than that if I had more spare time it's what I'd do all the time!!!
