Spoonflower = WoW= My Very Own Fabrics!

I had been hearing about Spoonflower for quite some time, but had always thought that it was for 'better artists' than me. My journal swap buddy, Judy from North Carolina, wrote to tell me that she had seen Spoonflower and thought of my cat paintings. Of course, I finally decided that it was time to have a bit'o'fun! At first I thought I would order a yard or two and then thought about the swatches they offer. I have never thought of any of my small paintings being cloth, so I chose a few to try - not the cats yet. Glad that I chose the swatches too because some of the things that I thought would look the best were my least favorites while things that I thought would be good were the least impressive. I am going to order a bit of yardage of two of these and I will adjust the scale to make this second photo a larger scale panel. Next order will also include some of the cats - and one will go to Judy.

I am a real Spoonflower fan now. I'd love to hear some feedback from you on these swatches if you care to comment - and check back soon because I am going to let my fingers do the walking to Spoonflower agin this week! Y-E-A-H !! What fun !

Those are fantastic. My favorite is the second from the bottom.

really, really cool fabrics. It is fun to see what people create with Spoonflower. I love the way the fabric designs repeat - very creative.

Isn't Spoonflower a great invention? Love those top two fabrics you created.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the first one! It must be a thrill to work with your own designs from the "ground up"
