DIY fabric design with spoonflower

Designing your own fabric with Spoonflower

Have you ever wanted to have your own fabric printed? Spoonflower can help you with that.

Spoonflower prints fabric on demand which means you choose from hundreds of designs already on the site, or upload your own. You then choose your base cloth and meterage and add to cart! They also offer wallpaper, decals and gift wrap so the possibilities are endless – you could decorate your whole house and have it matching perfectly. Here are a few examples –


Watercolor Plus in Blue Pink and Gold

Sherbet and Ash

Or how about some cut and sew designs? Save time by ordering one of these designs and you won’t need to worry about a pattern as the fabric has the outline included. Could be a great gift idea for a beginner sewist.

Business idea – design your own pattern and selling it as a kit with instructions, notions and extra trims? You could offer some suggestions on how to personalise as well.

    I was so delighted with my fabric. I’m certainly no designer but being able to design 3 easy bags all on the same 1 yard was perfect for what I was looking for, and actually the fabric sold really well too. I like your business idea – would create a great kit to sell. Thanks for sharing my project. Deby at So Sew Easy
