Spoonflower is revolutionizing the way you replenish your fabric stash! Choose from basic yard templates (half yards horizontal or vertical) or project templates (cheater quilts and infinity scarves) and select the designs you want printed. With multiple designs filling a yard, you can now get the fabric you want in just the amounts you need. Check out some of our fave projects below, and learn how to use this exciting new technology:
With our new Fill-A-ProjectTM cheater quilt templates, you can complete an heirloom-quality large quilt in record time. Up your quilt game with custom fabric you designed yourself or find those just-right designs in our Marketplace.
Each Fill-A-ProjectTM is offered in a limited selection of fabric types. For our cheater quilt tops, you can choose from Petal Signature Cotton™, Cotton Poplin or Organic Cotton Sateen. Don’t forget to choose yardage for the backing! The quilters among us love Organic Cotton Sateen Ultra ($27/yd), Petal Signature Cotton ($18.50/yd), Cotton Poplin Ultra ($20/yd), Satin ($18/yd) and Minky ($27/yd) for a soft and colorful touch.
Create two scarves with just two yards! This is one of our favorite beginner sewing projects. Once you order your infinity scarf fabric, check out our favorite infinity scarf tutorial to learn how to easily put it together with just a few seams. Use Poly Crepe de Chine to create a lightweight, sheer scarf, or use Modern Jersey or Cotton Spandex Ultra to create a soft, stretchy scarf.
There will be zero upcharge for templates and the commission structure will be a percentage of the yard based on how much your design covers. Templates follow current pricing by substrate. Currently, you will also earn commissions on Fill-A-Yard projects you order for yourself using your own designs — this is in lieu of the 10% designer discount on regular fabric purchases. This ‘commission’ will show up in your account as spendable Spoondollars, but will not be included on any total earnings for tax purposes.
There are two great reasons to build Collections now. First, in order to fill a template with multiple designs, the designs must all be within the same collection — which can now include designs from any designer in the marketplace! Second, shoppers love groups of designs curated around themes or colorways for their projects. Designers — make sure to add titles and descriptions to your Collections with theme keywords and colors so that others can find them easily when searching for those perfect pairings. Start creating and have fun!
