Create your Own Fabric

I love the article in a recent Country Living Magazine that highlighted Spoonflower's great service.  If you can upload a photo, you can make your own fabric.  Anything goes - photographs, printed text, sketches, anything!  Think of what a great idea this is for a unique wedding gift, baby gift or other special occasion.  Having trouble finding that perfect fabric to match your home?  Make your own!  There is no minimum order and they use eco-friendly materials.

Below is just one example:

Happy Creating!
