by your design - Spoonflower

Thanks to my friend, Anna of misosouper I found out about a new site called Spoonflower. There you can create your own custom fabric. It is just the coolest thing! You need to create an account before you can upload your designs on Spoonflower but it is easy. They require your email address, name and username. You will receive a confirmation email and then you click a link to accept. Once you do that you will be taken to the site and asked to create a password. That is all there is to it.

They run a weekly contest showing about 5 or 6 fabric patterns designed by their users and then you vote for your fave.

Some recent designs on Spoonflower:

Here is how it works. You upload your design and they will put it on fabric for you. You are not obligated to purchase any fabric - you can keep a portfolio of your designs and purchase when you are ready. Once you have uploaded your design, you will be able to see your fabric with a repeat. The cost per yard (42" x 36") is $18.00. You can order an 8" x 8" swatch for $5.00. They are currently in Beta so you cannot purchase other folks designs but they say that will change once they are out of Beta.
