    I would like to have some of my own designs printed on their cotton sateen – actually I have used Spoonflower before to do just that. Good stuff!

    I’d love to try my own print in a knit. I was fascinated by the cut and sew patterns. What a site!

    I like Diamond Circles Aqua in organic cotton sateen. That would make a very pretty skirt or dress.

    My own graphic design, printed by Spoonflower. Right now, I’m more into geometric shapes preferring circles of varying circumferences, some overlapping. I would choose a medium-to-heavy weight cotton for fabric.

    This was my first visit to Spoonflower. What a cool site! I have had to bookmark the site. I have already spent over an hour looking at options. Right now, I want the “Cut and Sew” Dandelion skirt.

    Wow – what a prize! I love the spoonflower designs, but what i’d really love to do is have some of my butterfly patterns printed onto fabric – as an artist as well as a sewist, i’m constantly looking to incorporate the two sides of my creativity

    I’d use the floral ones because the designs are great and its not available here. Given the chance to choose, I would really pick the floral fabric and I think it would suit well in making a maternity dress for my sister who’s having her second blessing right now. :)

    I likewise think this would be a perfect Christmas present for her!

    I really want my boyfriend to draw a design for me for a dress. I think that would be really sweet. From the website I love the photographic prints and especially love the large ‘love’ bricks in blue. Its such a fun print.

    Cotton sateen. I love it to work with, and it’s so difficult to find pretty prints! Or cotton silk! Sounds so luxurious!
