Inspired to Design Giveaway

Little girl with fabricI love designing fabric, and I also love seeing other people's designs "materialize"...

I love turning imagination into a design and then having it printed onto fabric. 

So, I thought I would like to offer an Inspired to Design Giveaway.

Little girl with fabricI would like to help you make your fabric design become a reality.  I will work with you, using your design to create the scale, colors, and pattern that you want.  Perhaps you have something planned for the holidays and would like a fabric you can't seem to find anywhere.

Usually a customer sends me a photo, description or sketch of their idea.  It might take a few swatches to test the colors, pattern and scale.  It is so worth the wait, to see your idea come to life.

Little girl with fabricIf you sew, you must be filled with so many ideas for a fabric design.


One customer sent me a menu from a restaurant that she and her husband had gone to in 1971.  We combined my French script in her color choice using her menu.  Now this fabric lives on pillows in her family room, reminding her of a romantic dinner in Paris.

Maybe you have a special event coming up, and you would like to personalize some fabric for a sewing project.

Little girl with fabricI received a request from a customer for a fabric that she wanted to revise a bit.  She was so smitten with designing that she now has her own shop on Spoonflower.

This giveaway is my own design, and not part of any effort to promote Spoonflower. Although I love them, and they keep adding new and wonderful ways to help us design fabric.
