    So many choices! I really like the Nebula prints, maybe on organic cotton knit. I would probably let my very talented niece design her own fabric print and then make her something with it.

    lately I am getting into Japanese fabrics for bags and accessory items. So I like the fabrics on the site that have that look….

    I am not sure which fabric I would choose. Cotton, silk , cotton knit, original design. So many possibilities! What a wonderful decision to make, but it will take me a while to decide. Great prize. I have heard so much good about Spoonflower and would love to try fabric created by them.

    I really want to try making my own design on Spoonflower. I have some costumes with really specific patterns of fabric that I’d love to make.

    I would love a Spoonflower credit. I have used them in the past and love everything about them. Great way to create your own designs on fabric.

    I think I’d give making my own design a try for sure….and if not then probably a crazy floral fabric

    Oh, I would definitely want to make napkins. Cut down on paper usage in the world a little at a time. Probably my honey bee pattern.

    Wow. Now this is an inspired idea! No more driving all over town for a specific style!! I am partial to Science Fiction, and would be very cool to have anything similar to Stargate insignia on any material!

    Oh my word, I had never heard of Spoonflower before. What a wonderful collection of fabric; a girl could get lost for hours on that website. Though I certainly did not do an exhaustive search (yet), I would love to have some of that Cherry Blossom fabric in a cotton silk for an upcoming project.

    I love Spoonflower fabric. I’ve been thinking of adding the Tea Towel Calender print to my stash, but I would really love to design a print honoring the women in my life.

    definitely one of the large image prints, or a plaid. those are amazingly hard to find elsewhere! …or one of these oddly creepy prints: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/713122

    Helenklebesadel’s fabric ‘Ecology of cold’ is very beautiful! ( http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/124820 ) In the ice you can see plants and animals. The water painting is gorgeous, and I like the color too! I would buy it on cotton silk to make a blouse.

    Oh, I’d start out with"skulls in the garden," and then move on form there — there are just so many great Spoonflower options!

    This question would send me on hours of searching through their fantastic fabrics! But I think I would try out my own pattern that I’ve been wanting to create for a while. Covered in cute foxes!
