If you haven’t heard of the site Spoonflower yet you are missing out. It’s a website that allows designers (or anyone), to upload their own fabric designs then buy or sell them as real fabric. It was founded “by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles”. But in the mean time, please take a second to vote for my friend Samarra in this weeks special Celebrity Fabric Design Smackdown (this is a thumbnail of her design here, so when you go to vote remember it’s the one with the purple background and teardrop shapes). It’s one vote per person and only one vote per IP address will be counted, so please pass along so she can win! While you are there check out her other designs. There is a theme for each weekly contest and she’s put together an amazing group of designs so far. Now I just need to get my hands on a sewing machine!
