a spoonful of flowers...

When it comes to buying presents for people, finding the gifts is the easy part.

Far more difficult is finding paper I want to wrap them in!

That's why I was so delighted to finally come across Spoonflower!

Picture 9Spoonflower make it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric, wallpaper, decals and gift wrap!

It was founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles. The company came about because Stephen’s wife, Kim, persuaded him that being able to print her own fabric for curtains was a really cool idea. She wasn’t alone.

The Spoonflower community now numbers over a million individuals who use their own fabric to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. The Spoonflower marketplace offers the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world...
