Spoonflower Prints

One of the things I have always wanted to do since I was young is be able to design my own fabric so I couldn't be more thrilled with a company like Spoonflower that offers this service, and the best part is that I can also share my designs with anyone else who shops on the site. Spoonflower will give me a small kickback for anyone who prints my designs. It's not a get rich scheme by any means. I would say more a labor of love, but that is perfectly okay with me. I love the experience and it is such a thrill to see my work printed out. The only thing that would make me more happy would be if it helps other people. I have been on a quest of reducing our chemical footprint at my house and with that has come reusable feminine products for me. The change has been great for me in many ways. Oddly enough I find it less gross that the throw away products. In the next few weeks I plan to elaborate on what I use and how it works for me.

As far as this collection goes I have been working on these prints for a few months now off and on. I was waiting until I had 30 more to release it. I am pretty excited about these designs. I have several cut and sew patterns. Mostly they are for cloth pads. I plan to make a few YouTube videos to help talk about how I use the cut and sew patterns so stay tuned for those.

I designed the fall pumpkin prints last season and finally have that available to purchase. Designing fabric has been fun for me to come up with cute ideas. I have realized that one idea leads to the next. The fun has just begun. So be watching for more fun cut and sew things.

You can find all these designs in my Spoonflower shop Katie_Crafty_Mom.
