Spoonflower, what a great resource!

Jeanne has found new applications for her artwork. Her designs are gorgeous!

Spoonflower  is a great website where anyone can upload designs and get fabric made from their own work. I had been given directions about a printing process involving feeding small treated pieces of unbleached muslin through a printer when an artist friend of mine pointed me in the right direction…that is, let someone else do it. Here are some samples of fabric that I’ve ordered. It’s a good thing you can get 8×8 inch samples because you really need to check the coloring and sharpness of the designs before you pay for the actual yardage, which can be quite costly, depending on the weight of your fabric.
