I received a really fantastic, fancy sewing machine for Christmas which got me looking at, and thinking about fabric design. I've wanted to try my hand at it for a while... now I had the motivation.
A few weeks ago I was browsing fabrics for sale and stumbled upon Spoonflower. Then I discovered they held weekly design contests, each with a new theme. Some are pretty unique, like the Civil Rights Toile contest (in which my fabric placed second).
My favorite design so far has been my Court Jester pattern. It's for sale here.
