    I would use it to print my own 2013 calendar for next year! I had so much fun designing and printing my 2012 calendars and plan to do it again!

    I think I’d pick “Foxen”…though it’s not easy to pick just one fabric.

    I know an artist, Maeula, who makes some spectacular prints on Spoonflower, whose work I’d love to purchase, especially as higher quality fabric.

    Oh I blogged just a couple of weeks ago about how I just acquired a stunning 1950s pattern and was so in love with the fabric on the envelope that I wanted to get it custom printed at Spoonflower! I would love it in a silk! Swoon! Oh I hope I win like you wouldn’t believe!

    I’ve uploaded some drawings my daughter made, and I would consider printing that for a special project. There’s also a wonderful rabbit in the moon print that I’ve been eyeing for a special project.

    I’d use the pois fond rouge 2 or the Pink Speckle for the lining of a little girl’s vest I’m sewing right now.

    OMG, theses are gorgeous!!! With the variety of choice, it would take me longer to decide, but right now, I really like the «fruit and veggie madness » fabric for making an apron…

    I didn’t know Spoonflower, but after having seen their website, I’m amazed. It would be very hard to choose just one fabric. Maybe I would pick the BIRCH_BIG in cotton sateen.

    Right now I am a little obsessed with Ikat and not many places seem to have a good selection of it. Spoonflower has a nice selection. I’m also searching for the perfect linen for a skirt project I have in mind and again I think Spoonflower has that covered.

    All the fabrics are soooo savory! I would choose the Russian matryoshka dolls with flowers and candles. I recently purchased some machine embroidery designs that will coordinate with the fabric so beautifully.

    Great giveaway! I’d love to try a cut and sew pattern like the dandelion skirt!

    I would use Alice Vintage Border and Text (black and white) for a full-skirted dress, using the border as the skirt hem. I can imagine the dress perfectly in my mind: high boateck in front, low neck in the back, gathered skirt with lots of puff in it…

    I don’t know what I would pick, but I’m moving somewhere hot, so maybe organic cotton or the silk-cotton blend. I love that stuff!
