    I love Spoonflower, I can never choose what to get but it’s wonderful anyway. I have a real thing for mushrooms and houses right now so anything with that on it.

    I’m thinking I would like to try some spoonflower in either silk or the voile. I love lightweight drapeable fabrics and spoonflower has so many delicious designs to choose from!

    I was goin g to say the tiny print leaves for me- but, then I saw the TARDIS fabric. I would get it for my youngest who is a great fan of Dr. Who. I might make him something—-or he might make it himself.

    Absolutely nutty for anything chevron… for myself, or my precious 2 year old! I’m particularly fond of this chevron/color scheme: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/458992

    Hands down my first purchase would be this TARDIS fabric! http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/610828 I have been sewing for over 10 years and have yet to make anything for my husband. This would knock his socks off to see a pair of PJ’s in this print. He is crazy about Dr. Who!!!

    I would choose either Jellies on Back in cotton sateen or Your So Vain, You Probably Think This Fabric Is About You in crepe de chine. I have a few ideas for both fabrics… I love spoonflower.com!!!

    I probably would print my own design, some on silk and some on knit as well

    I like the knit at the moment, and as I use for embellishing stuff find the quilting weight to be really good – with a 100 dollars I would stock up on some of the cool coordinates prints that are coming out for the coordinates contest and some other 4 in 1 fat quarters.

    I’d choose one of the lovely border-print or wide-printed-stripe prints I’ve seen some girls design for spoonflower—those are the hardest types of prints to find! They would make for some awesome full skirts. :)
