Inspiration: Make your own fabric designs with Spoonflower

When I first heard about Spoonflower, in May 2008, they were just starting their Beta version.

Now, not only can you make your own fabric pattern, but you can also get fabrics made by other indie designers (Including doll patterns!).
I am so amazed at what they’ve done in so little time.

Here’s some fabrics design inspiration I found via their Flickr group.

By Hamburger Liebe.

By Boodilly.

I love the use of simple drawings on fabrics here.

Here’s some examples of the dolls pattern you can make via Spoonflower.

You could even make some pillows with your fabrics. I love this idea!

If you never heard of them before, you should really take some time to take a look at their website.
It is a very interesting option if you’re an illustration/designer and looking for a way to offer different products.

Gotta love the web!

    Victoria: No problems, I loved your fabric so much! It’s so colorful and, somehow, it reminds me of thoses sheets covers from the 70’s.

    Lois: Your beet pillow is awesome and I just realized we could buy it on your Etsy shop. Nice! 🙂
