The 2013 crafting goodness (or madness, for those of you frantically making holiday gifts!) is winding down, and we've been thinking back on some our favorite design and crafting projects we've been fortunate to host on the Spoonflower blog this year.
Spoonflower crew member Caroline Okun used copies of her grandfather's patent for an improved umbrella design to create a personal (and cool!) wrapping paper for her dad's Father's Day gift.
Independent clothing designer Jamie Lau shared a garment building journey from creating her first textile design to sewing a gorgeous shift dress.
Spoonflower crew member Stephanie Anton shared her succulent wedding favors complete with charming fabric care sheets for guests.
Salty Oat blogger, quilter, and Spoonflower teammate Caitlin Topham taught us how to design simple quilt or handmade good labels.
Emma Jeffery of the Hello Beautiful blog collaged her daughter's first grade class self-portraits into a keepsake tea towel for their teacher. Your own twist on this project would make a perfect holiday present for someone special in your life!
We hope you enjoyed our little round up of design and crafting tutorials from our guest writers and the Spoonflower staff. We're planning even more DIY goodness and inspiration for 2014, so stay tuned! Ideas for projects you'd like to see in the new year? Post them in the comments below!
