Spoonflower & Guest Blogging

Who among you has heard of Spoonflower?

Just a few of the fabric designs I have created.
Spoonflower is a site that allows artists and fabric designers to upload artwork and make fabric out of it.

I think I'm hooked!
I even sneak down at night to work on my designs!
Some of my designs started as paintings, some as pen & inks, even cartoons.  
The creative process is so fun.
My sister is a quilt designer.  She has been onto me for quite awhile to check this site out.  

Finally, she said it at the right time.  That was about two weeks ago.  Now, I think I have about 30 fabric designs on the site. 

Spoonflower sponsors weekly contests.  
I entered this week.  
The contest is to design a purse/bag using only one yard of fabric. 
The site also, allows designers to have a store front. 
My entry to the Spoonflower create-a bag-panel.
So jump over to Spoonflower and cast your vote.  Vote for as many as you would like. 

I am the guest blogger on 
my sister's quilting blog.  
Actually, a fun little conversation online between sisters. 

Fabric Design: Crafty Ladies/ the artist and her sister the quilter.

Here is my purse I designed from concept to completion

    Spoonflower is one of those things I have bookmarked, but I am afraid I'd be hooked beyond redemption in no time flat. Then I'd have to learn to sew, and there in likes madness.
