You may have noticed this little button sitting on the side bar under the "Coming Soon" section. Want to know what it's all about? A few bloggy friends and I have been plotting away under your very noses. Sewing secret plans. Actually, we haven't started our sewing quite yet.
For a while now, I've wanted to try my hand at designing fabric. I can't tell you the number of times I've had something in my head that I wanted to make, and just couldn't find the right fabric for it. I started thinking about all of the fun I could have over at Spoonflower and set out create a few designs.
As I started playing around, I thought how exciting it would be if a few friends joined in the fun. I asked around to a few bloggers who have great taste and amazing design skills to see if anyone would be interested in a fabric design swap (you know, to balance my clear lack of experience in this field). To my amazement, they were all in. We paired up and are now in the process of finalizing our designs.
Starting in June, one pair of bloggers a month, will reveal what they've sewn using their partners fabric design. Since we're dealing with many factors such as longer Spoonflower turn around times for those of us living over seas, upcoming moves, baby arrival dates and other life events, our schedule is going to be loosey- goosey. Each pair has tentatively claimed a month, starting in June, so keep your eyes on the blog sphere to see what we're cooking up. You might even see a few sneak peaks on Instagram if you check out the #spoonflowerdesignswap tag.
Here is the list of lovely ladies who are playing along:
Ari of Max California
Amanda of Kitschy Coo
Kate of See Kate Sew
Susan of Crafterhours
Sabra of Sew a Straight Line
Alida of Alida Makes
Delia of Delia Creates
If you'd like to see the designs we've been working on, feel free to check out a few of our Spoonflower shops.
I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I can't wait to see what everyone sews! Ack! I may not be able to wait until June.
