  • I want to make a replacement window blind. Do you have any heavy weight material? Thank you!

    • Hi there and thank you for your interest in Spoonflower! For a heavier material you could explore using our velvet offerings as well as Linen Cotton Canvas, Cypress Cotton Canvas, or Performance Linen. You can learn about all of our fabric offerings here. I also recommend picking up one of our sample packs so you can get a feel for what would be best for your project.


  • Please explain the “TEST SQUARES” in the knit baby sewing patterns… what is the purpose of the test squares… I don’t see instructions regarding this.

    • Hi Connie!
      The test squares are a way to ensure your pattern pieces are printed at 100% scale, so if you cut out the test square and put it up to a ruler, it should match up to the size the page says it is (like 4″x4″). Sometimes printers will automatically scale down pages to 90%, which will affect the size of the printed pattern, so it’s important to check the print pop-up to make sure the pattern is printed at the full scale before you cut out your fabric. Hope that helps!

    I love that you provide patterns for us to use your wonderful fabric. Unfortunately, your directions are not always complete and we waste fabric. It only takes one mistake like that for some to stop using your website/patterns. I have been sewing garments for 50 years. I tried to follow your baby leggings pattern and watched the video and FINALLY figured out that the second page of the leggings pattern was NOT the 4″ X 6″ piece we were to cut from the center of the fat quarter but a piece that was supposed to be taped to the page 1 legging pattern! Nowhere do to tell us to do this. Nor do you give us any indication how long ( or wide or any other measurement) of the legging pattern. Conversely, on the baby hat page (and other patterns) you have a wonderful 1″ or 2″ test square so we know that when we print out the pattern, we have printed it out the correct size. Hoping that you’ll correct this issue soon.

    • Hi Diane,

      Thanks so much for your feedback regarding the leggings pattern and we apologize for any unexpected issues. We have added a note on the instructions and are in the process of updating the pattern. We appreciate you taking the time to bring this to our attention.

    • Hi Susan,

      Adorable leggings for everyone! While we don’t have a free adult version of this pattern, we recommend the Sloan Leggings from Hey June Handmade. You can learn more about our go-to leggings pattern and see the video tutorial here. Alternatively, you could trace an existing pair of leggings following this tutorial. I hope that helps, but if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask!


    Hi, Is there any way to order these as clothing for an expected Mum to be? Im cant sew to save my life. Thank you

    • Hi Natalie,

      While Spoonflower doesn’t sell finished clothing in Marketplace designs, there are LOTS of small businesses using Spoonflower to make baby clothing! We recommend taking a look at #spoonflowermakers on Instagram or looking through our Meet the Makers series to find just what you’re looking for!

  • I’d love to see some tutorials for projects using 8×8 swatches! I made a zipper pouch from one of mine but still have more.
