Print Your Own: Spoonflower Fabric

While searching for fabric online to make gifts for new babies (so much fun! a girl and a boy - not from the same family - so I get to indulge myself both ways!) I found the brilliant American site, Spoonflower, who ship internationally, luckily.

In their own words, Spoonflower make it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. Founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles. The company came about because Stephen’s wife, Kim, persuaded him that being able to print her own fabric for curtains was a really cool idea. She wasn’t alone. The Spoonflower community now numbers around 150,000 individuals.

Oh the possibilities! There are hundreds and hundreds of prints to choose from (or design your own), including cut and sew patterns. I could get - and have been -  seriously lost in these patterns, but here are some of my favourites. This week.

Some William-Morris-alikes:



Some gorgeous nursery choices:






Some pretty, but grown up:




Too good for the kids?:



Boy Heaven (that's not just for boys!):





And finally, for my husband:
