Thanks to the keen eye of our friend Kim at the fabulous new fabric blog True Up, you can admire some stunning pillows made from digitally printed fabric (available through the French company Bonjour Mon Coussin) while planning your own future projects using Spoonflower. Kim at True Up points out that it is a mistake to get too hung up on learning how to create repeats & use special software to design patterns. There are an infinite number of cool, uncomplicated projects you can concoct without knowing the first thing about Photoshop & its ilk.

While we’re on the subject of creating repeats, be sure to check out a-print-a-day, a blog a by Yasmine, a San Francisco designer who has set herself the challenge of  “creating a surface print every day.”

Last but not least I am happy to report that the behind-the-scenes work on the beta version of Spoonflower is going swimmingly. Look for the excitement to begin sometime in early May, although at least some beta testers will be hearing from me before then. Thanks to all of you for the support and excitement you’ve shown so far, including the lovely folks at (the much admired) Wee Wonderfuls, who are welcome to “stalk” us anytime.

  • I can’t wait until you have this up and running. When I designed swimwear I worked with a variety of textile companies. The Italian ones were getting into the digital printing. We used it primarily so that we could do samples before ordering final production yardage. But I love that this is closer to being available for smaller print runs. There used to be a company in Japan that would match up any print and make custom aprons and tea towels for the housewives .. also printed digitally. 🙂
