At Spoonflower, we’re all about collaboration. Whether we’re working with our talented community of Marketplace designers to create whimsical projects like the chocolate milk tent or partnering with companies like Bucketfeet for weekly design challenges, the thought of bouncing around ideas with other creatives fills us with excitement!

Earlier this year, we were feeling the love when we shared our Personalized Wedding Pillows for Under $10 DIY project on the blog.

Like many creatives, I often find myself daydreaming about my next big sewing project even before my current project is complete. Whether in the car, walking my dog or even brushing my teeth, custom fabric projects are always on the brain. While on a trail run, I dreamt up my race bib running top.

These pillows look great on Linen Cotton Canvas, Eco Canvas and Heavy Cotton Twill, but I was excited to try Spoonflower’s newest fabric, Lightweight Cotton Twill. This lightweight fabric is both soft and durable, is easy to work with, and is a perfect addition to your couch when made into a pillow.
