Theresa: Okay, are you guys ready for a serious throwback? This was the very first design tutorial uploaded to the Spoonflower Youtube channel 5 years ago! Which kind of feels like showing someone your high school diary, by the way. Created by co-founder Stephen Fraser, he shows us how you don’t need fancy design software to create a surface design. All you need to do is venture outside, forage something from nature that inspires you (in our example, it’s a fall leaf!), scan it into a computer, and boom–you have a repeating fabric design once you upload to Spoonflower.
When your design is done, it might look a little something like this design from Weavingmajor!
