Late last year I really wanted to have a go at designing my own fabric using Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a website where you can upload your own designs and create custom made fabric. Awesome.
I am not overly artistic. So I stuck with something simple and a topic I love. Dachshunds. Aka sausage dogs or weiner dogs. Are they not the best dog breed EVER!
Here is my sweetie, Pharlap, when he was a pup.
He is a long haired dacchy so he is much shaggier these days, as you can see in this post.
So inspired by him, I designed this fabric and I named it “Dachshund Love”.
I took advantage of a two for one fat quarter sale and I created two different colour ways. I am just waiting for the right project to come along so I can use some of this fabric!
Another brilliant Spoonflower project I have seen is by my friend Jodi from Art By Wiley. She turned a family recipe into gorgeous tea towels and gave them to all her family members for Christmas.

You can see the full story of Jodi’s tea towel here. You could use the same idea to showcase your kid’s art projects! (There is the Grandparent’s Christmas gift sorted!)
If you designed fabric, what would your fabric theme be?
