As you may know, I designed some fabrics awhile ago and offer them for sale by the yard through my shop on Spoonflower.
At first I created them because I couldn’t find any galaxy-print fabrics that I liked, and I wanted to play with the trending print. After I opened my shop though, people that I didn’t even know began purchasing my designs and using them in their own projects. I was so thrilled to see other creators designing with fabrics that I had spent so long laboring over their designs, their colors, their pattern repeat until my eyes were practically crossed!
Some people were kind enough to share with me some projects they had made:
Like Yannick who goes by @yansev on Instagram, who made this amazing wakeboard cover using my palm tree fabric. (He’s working on a line of wakeboard covers coming in Summer 2015 – follow him on Instagram for updates!!) Whoever thought of making a wakeboard cover with Spoonflower fabric…isn’t that cool??!
And Maria, who made this galaxy-print tote she offers for sale in her Etsy shop 162Pens.
She also made this cute little pencil case/makeup pouch too.
Her craftsmanship is just beautiful…you should definitely check out the other pretty designs in her shop to ogle!
Thank you everyone for sharing your amazing projects with me! I’m so happy that you found these fabrics useful and fun for you:-)
Just to share some more ideas, I made this DIY Flat Bottomed Zip Pouch with my Sideways Palm Tree Tropical Photo Print in organic cotton sateen…
…this DIY Galaxy-Print Mini Skirt with my Alternate Blue Galaxy Print in organic cotton sateen…
…and this scrunchie with my Red Star Field Galaxy Print in silk crepe de chine.
In addition to fabrics, you can also get any of these prints available for sale as wallpaper or gift wrap too!
I’m so happy that something like Spoonflower exists, where fabric designers can made beautiful fabrics come to life, and people like me, who just like playing with pattern and color, can even aspire to be a fabric designer.
If any of you have used my Spoonflower fabrics for anything, please share your projects with me! I’d love to showcase them on Chic Steals 🙂
