Now you can shop on Spoonflower and get fabric designed by me, especially for use with Shiny Happy World patterns!
There are so many ways to shop!
One of the niftiest features they have on Spoonflower is their Fill-a-Yard. It allows you to print a LOT of different designs on a single yard of fabric. So cool! And so cost-effective, too. 🙂
In this video I walk you step by step through how to fill a yard. You can make 6 inch squares (a nice small amount for applique), 12 inch squares (great for background blocks), 6 x 12 inch rectangles (perfect for half-blocks), 12 x 24 inch rectangles (perfect for double blocks), 18 inch squares (great for pillows), full-width stripes (terrific for binding) and more!
Here’s how to do it. . .
I love using this feature to create something resembling pre-cuts. They’re not cut yet, but they’re printed on the fabric so they’re super easy to cut AND I can wash them while they’re one full yard so no shredding or twisting in the wash. Awesome!
So now you have so many options!
- Shop by color palette.
- Shop by individual color.
- Shop by print.
- Buy yardage.
- Create your own “pre-cuts” to buy very small amounts of a design.
- Buy cheater quilt fabric.
- Get background blocks with the quilting lines printed on them.
- Get coordinating minky for your quilt back.
- Get coordinating satin for the binding.
- Buy pre-made items like duvet covers, sheets, and curtains.
- Get your favorite prints on comfy knits for kids clothing.
Spoonflower is FANTASTIC! I’ve been buying their fabric for personal use (clothing and home decor) for over a year now and I’m just thrilled with the quality. I’ve been dreaming of designing fabric for years now, and I’m so excited that it’s finally happening.
I can’t wait to see what you all make!
