Aside from using it to perfectly match digital RGB hex codes to the printed color of a certain fabric type, did you know that our color maps also make for some pretty amazing sewing projects? Employees of Spoonflower know this better than anyone, as many of us have used our color maps to create everything from pillows to headbands and even guitar straps! Check out a few of our favorite projects below, and pick up a color map of your very own here. The color maps just got a new look with even bigger hex squares, so even if you already have a few laying around at home it may be time to upgrade or try one in a different fabric. Here are a few projects for all of you ultimate color nerds like us out there!
Like many Spoonies, Leah started out cutting fabric on the Ops floor (four and a half years ago!), moved to the printing department, then ultimately made her way to the Engineering team, working on the Spoonflower website. Books, cats, and cross stitch are just a few of Leah’s favorite things. Get to know her a little more in our Q&A below!
The first thing I want you to know about me is: I love reading. I always keep a book with me so I can fill any free time with a few more pages.
My secret talent is: I remember where everything is currently located in my house. I forget lots of other things, but if you need to find the tape measure that you’ve misplaced for the hundredth time, I can find it.
The very first thing I do in the morning is: Pet my cat who has usually woken me up to remind me about the status of his food dish.
The last book I read is: Matilda by Roald Dahl.
The last song I listened to is: Pale September by Fiona Apple.
I take my coffee: Decaf, with cream.
I loooooove: Cats.
I’m really proud of: My weavings from Undergrad. The loom in my house is sadly neglected in favor of my current passion: cross stitching.
The podcast I never miss an episode of is: I haven’t kept up with the podcast trend, but if Jeopardy ever becomes a podcast I will definitely subscribe to that.
