Ta Daaa! Here is my first ever entry in a fabric design contest:
|"Fishie Coral" by Lula Belle - you can vote in the fabric design contest here: Fabric Design Contest|
Spoonflower Custom Fabrics is the first digital printing company I ever used to print my own fabric designs. They hold weekly design contests, and the competition has gotten stiffer as the months go by. After dragging my husband up to New York to walk the Surtex surface design show, I knew I was toast - with myself and others - unless I jumped into the pool and got rolling. So I did.
"Fishie Coral" can be printed on either 42" wide quilting weight cotton or 54" - 58" wide in several different fabrics, including my favorite upholstery weight twill at $32.00 per yard. The repeat size can be customized by changing the image size on the page where you place orders.
All you artists out there should take a look at Spoonflower - you can upload your designs and print as little as a $5.00 swatch, or a 21" x 18" piece for $11.00. Caution: It Is Addictive!
