For Your Business
Have you ever wondered how designers in the Spoonflower community create the adorable cut-and-sew projects you’ve been eyeing in the Marketplace? From the purrrfect zipper pouch (see the how-to here) to a giftable hedgehog plushie, the only limit to creating your very own cut-and-sew project is your imagination. To help you get started, Spoonflower designer Ceri Staziker–cerigwen in the Marketplace–is sharing seven design tips for successfully creating a cut-and-sew project. By the time you’re done, you’ll never underestimate the power of a fat quarter!
By now, you probably already know that you can sample a single design on any fabric for $5 (or wallpaper for $5-$7.50), but did you know that you can also sample dozens of designs at once on a single piece of fabric for a great price? We’ll walk you through two ways to do that below so you can start saving money to make money in the Spoonflower Marketplace!
There’s nothing quite like making money doing what you love and seeing other people use your artwork to make amazing things. Just one scroll through #spoonflower on Instagram and you’ll be hit with a wave of inspiration and joy. Selling your designs in the Spoonflower Marketplace is not only rewarding, but you join a diverse community of artists from all walks of life. From professional designers to hobbyists, the Spoonflower Marketplace is a place for everyone, including you! But how do you set up your Spoonflower shop for success?

Over the past (almost!) 10 years, the Spoonflower community has grown into a family of designers, crafters and makers. You could consider Spoonflower a melting pot of talent where one artist’s strength in design supports another artist’s strength in making. We love seeing these collaborations grow and we’ve even gotten to know some of the small business owners on a personal level through the Meet the Maker series on the blog. If you’ve ever considered taking the steps to owning your own business, you won’t want to miss these words of wisdom our maker community is sharing today!
