One cool thing about hanging out online for awhile is that you notice the ideas that stick and also those that don't. While I'm always sad to see a business go, the excitement of watching one grow and blossom is quite satisfying and keeps me energized by the web over and over again. One company that I blogged about when they first launched in beta version back in 2008 is Spoonflower and it's been quite a pleasure to watch them blossom because I think their idea is the best!
Spoonflower gives creative types the power to design, print and sell their own fabric designs through their website and to purchase the work of others. They have some great independent designers and though most of their fabrics lean more towards the sweet side, you still have many great ones to browse, be inspired by and to purchase for your next crafting or decorating project. Above are just a few of my picks, no doubt you will find your own favorites at Spoonflower too. Have fun!
