My Craft Magazine pattern printed by Spoonflower!

Craft Magazine pattern

I was so excited when the superbly wonderful art director over at Craft asked me to create a Craft Magazine pattern! What could possibly be more fun? I opened my mailbox this afternoon and there was the latest issue of Craft! I’m always excited to receive it but was especially thrilled to see how the pattern came out. Craft had it printed by Spoonflower. I can’t begin to say enough about Spoonflower (Holly was the first to suggest them to me).

Remember my starlet harlot pattern? They’re printing it up as we speak. They’re such an incredible company (husband and wife founded). I plan to work with them lots. Read about them here. I’ll do a more extensive post on them when my fabric comes in. For now, pick up the latest issue of Craft (on news stands Nov. 4th) and see what they have to say. Or check out the digital version here.

Here’s a sneak peek of the spread that features the Craft pattern printed so beautifully by Spoonflower!:

    oh you commented just as I came online! Thanks so much Anna. I just love Spoonflower. They’re incredible. Last May I was searching all over for a place that would do a small run of fabric. No one else does it. It would have cost me $1000. With them I can print enough fabric for a cushion or a simple swatch. It’s great. I’m sure my fabric will be ready soon. I’ll be sure to post!

    oh i was hoping my mag stand would have it! but it didn’t 🙁 so nice you posted the image!. it looks great samantha!

    spoonflower actually has very fair prices. i used to have my patterns printed at a place in los angeles, and it cost me 75-80 per yard! more if i wanted it to be water resistant, PLUS 200 dollars for color matching. eep! i love spoonflower. i’m uploading a print soon. and the owners are super nice.

    I wish I had the talent to justify creating my own pattern for fabric. And congrats.

    You should try it! Especially if you make or alter clothing. You can just put together something simple and Spoonflower will tile it for you. Take a look at their site. You don’t have to make your own pattern even. I think they have available for you!
