Spoonflower: Print custom fabric on-demand

Hue 3
Have you ever been looking for just the right fabric for a sewing project and couldn't find it for the life of you? Well, Spoonflower has changed everything by allowing people to upload their own designs to print custom fabric.

Yes, it is a bit more expensive at $18-27 a yard, but there are ways to get 10% designer discounts. You can also shop other people's designs. Plus, they have design contests where you can win $100 credit, plus you always get 10% of any of your designs that sell.

P.S. I haven't tried them personally, but they offer several different fabric choices and you can buy swatches and fat quarters at a much lower price. You can also see a video of completed fabric here (skim forward to 4:30 on the video) and they have a blog that has posts that cover pretty much any question you may have.

I love spoonflower - I have several friends who design and have their fabric there. I love the idea. I may actually get it together to do something someday.

The martini fabric rox!
