Custom Fabric Printing

I stumbled across the coolest site/idea I’ve heard of in a long time today – custom printed fabrics.

I discovered it by visiting Wonderfluff’s cute etsy shop – here’s a beautiful fabric that she designed herself called Summer Flowers.

The fabric was printed by Spoonflower, an innovative company that creates print-on-demand fabric by the yard. All you need is a digital image at 150 dpi which you upload, and the interactive fabric designer interface allows you to choose how you want the pattern displayed (offset, stacked, mirrored, etc.) a real time preview gives you a good idea of what it will look like printed.

The price range is $18-$35 a yard, with $5 swatches. So while you might not want to totally re-upholster your couch (although they do offer upholstery weight fabric) this fabric would be great for smaller projects like aprons, bags, or in my case, BOOKS.

design your own fabrics!

I can’t wait to try it out!
