    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!

    THAT typewriter and flying papers fabric. I’d embroider messages and motifs onto the papers and make cushions, aprons and such like from it.

    I’ve wanted the Orion polka dot fabric for a blouse for what seems like forever. It would definitely be my frst pick!

    $100 credit at Spoonflower!?! Awesome! I loved it when they had the 2012 tea towel calendar contest, so I’d probably get a couple of those (pennycandy, bora and patty sloninger all have great ones) — and order some of my own designs.

    I would probably buy the Swan Lake, in silk. It has such intense color; would love to make it up into a ballgown skirt., with some tulle….

    I designed some fabric for a contest and didn’t win. With Spoonflower I was able to print my designed fabric and be a winner anyway:) It would take awhile to decide which fabric to buy…soooo many great choices!

    I saw this one and almost went nuts! Eleven Traveling Doctors and Blue Phone Boxes- LARGE! What more could a girl need than fabric with a Dr. Who design? Alonsee!!

    OMG……where have I been!?!?!? How is it I didn’t learn about Spoonflower until now. There is no way I can pick just one! There are too many I’m in love with and got to have. And of course the idea of creating my own. Oh….this could be a dangerous find to my budget.

    There are so many great prints! Right now I’m loving “c’est la viv garden collection” in voile for a pretty blouse!

    I think I’d let my daughter pick out her fabric for her next 4-H project. She was the Reserve Champion last year using a fun plaid to make a cute dress from one of the Project Runway patterns. Maybe a really unique fabric selection will inspire her. Love the fabrics!!!!!!!

    I love the “green with envy” print on silk blend, for a fab dress!

    It would be very easy to spend $100 on Spoonflower! I’d probably start with umbraline block magenta, since I’ve been looking for fabrics with Pantone’s new color of the year (orange-red-tangerine). But lorenloop_linen also calls to me since I have a long time love of blues and teals. Thanks for the giveaway!
