Dr Who Fabric Design with Spoonflower

Have you ever had a project and just couldn’t find the right fabric? Well, Spoonflower is your answer! You can create that one-off fabric you need… as unique and quirky as it may be 🙂

Spoonflower makes it possible for you to create your own custom fabric, wallpaper, decals and even gift wrap. I love that they have no minimum order, you can get as little (or as much) printed as you want. Over the last couple of years I’ve placed quite a few orders with them trying out the different fabrics, there is such a wide range to choose from including cotton, canvas, jersey and poplin just to name a few. They also have a little swatch book available with their range, which comes in handy when selecting the fabrics.

They have loads of tutorials on their blog if you want to give it a go. I use Illustrator to design with and then upload the files as a tiff, but you don’t have to use Illustrator or Photoshop – you can just as easily create a cute design from a drawing like they demonstrate in this tutorial.

The designs below I recently got printed on the Kona Cotton, which is 100% cotton and a good quilting weight fabric. I’ve made these designs into headscarves for all the Dr Who lovers! This fabric is also available from my Spoonflower shop for anyone wanting to make a funky pair of Tardis PJ’s or some other fan memorabilia 😉
