Spoonflower Sale!

Last year at this time, Spoonflower had a buy one, get one free of their fat quarters and I jumped on it.  This year they are doing the same thing this week and I wanted to let you in on it!

I bought some tea towel calendars for gifts and my favorites from last year have been updated for 2012!

This birdie one is so cute!

After I took the picture I cut off the excess dowel rod and fixed the ribbon. :) I was in a hurry for some reason to take the picture.  

The 2012 calender can be purchased here.

The design comes on a fat quarter and then you have to hem it yourself.  It wasn't hard. On one of them, I did have to cut off the extra from the bottom and add it to the top to have enough fabric to make a pocket to place the dowel rod.  I added upholstery tacks to the end of the dowel and tied the ribbon to them.  You could just hem it all the way around and use pins to hang it on your wall or frame one if you're really ambitious. Hmm, I guess you could use one as a towel too. :)

I didn't take a picture of the one I gave my oldest daughter, but you can view it here on flickr.  After hemming it and adding the rod pocket I embroidered a circle around her and her husband's wedding date.  Get it?!  It's a bicycle built for two!!

Do you know anyone getting married this year?  It's a great gift!

The designer (beck&lundy) has updated the calendar and you can purchase it here (choice of two different colors).

For you tea drinkers:  this one!

Spoonflower recommends the linen cotton canvas for the tea towels and that is what I bought.   At BOGO, that's only $7 a piece.

With a fat quarter of this fabric, you can make 3 doll rattles.  Cute!  (I bought it last year and now this year I'm going to have a grand baby.....)

Another favorite of mine...what about a tote bag out of it?

I've blogged about Spoonflower before...wouldn't it be great to design your own fabric?!...on my to do list!
