Discovered while reading the Sew Mama Sew blog: Spoonflower, a site that lets you design your own fabric! They print it out for you. They will even offer your custom-designed fabric up for sale to others. Immediately got sucked into browsing the "cut-and-sew patterns" section--which contains over 1,000 designs.
Caught my eye:
- "My very first time traveler book" - a Dr. Who inspired fabric children's alphabet book
- "Baby's book of computer science" - omg cute-&-nerdy! fabric book with flaps to illustrate binary numbers and other elementary computer programming concepts
- "Vintage camera bag" - fabric sews into a small purse that looks just like an old-fashioned camera
"Hurry Up, Pizza Man" - an interactive children's book and activity kit
|"pepperoni" made out of plastic bottle caps|
Three Wise Men dolls made out of Kente cloth.
Not to worry, I'm not currently planning to start a new career as a fabric designer. I just get a little excited/obsessed about new and creative things. I'll keep Spoonflower in mind if I get to the place of truly wanting this particular vision to become a reality.
As always, so many ideas, so little time
