The Spoonflower Handbook

I might have mentioned before, that I love Spoonflower. And in addition to offering on-demand printing for fabrics, they’ve also published two books. Textiles and Books, what better combination?

While the Spoonflower Quick-sew Project Book, focuses on things to make with their fabrics (from a swatch to several yards), the Spoonflower Handbook, is a guide to start designing one’s own fabrics.

I have to say, that as someone who knows her way around a graphic program (I use Affinity Photo and Designer), there isn’t a lot of new to me stuff in the book. Though I definitely got inspired by some of the small projects in the book and have plans for some gifts alread. But if you’ve never used a graphic program, the book offers a whole series of step-by-step instructions on how to turn your drawings and photos into your own, personal designs and fabrics.

As the Handbook is written by the founders themselves, it is also interesting, to get a view behind the curtains into how it all started and get a feel for the company culture.

If you are interested in getting into designing your own fabric designs, they also have a whole section of their blog, dedicated to designers and sellers.
