For the budding surface designer


Spoonflower  is an online service that allows you to upload your patterns and have they printed on several mediums – fabric, wallpaper or gift wrap.

Fabric choices include basic combed cotton, Kona cotton, performance pique, cotton poplin, poly crepe de chine (for a limited time), silky faille, performance knit (a fave of mine), cotton silk, linen-cotton canvas, organic cotton interlock knit (another fave), organic cotton sateen, eco canvas, heavy cotton twill, faux suede and silk crepe de chine.

Wallpaper choices include smooth and woven wallpapers with adhesive backing or peel and stick wallpaper.

Gift Wrap is available in matte or satin.

It is a great community offering weekly contests to participate in and be inspired by the great works of others.
