Has anyone else noticed a trend of pastel colored holiday decorations making an appearance this time of year? Long gone are the days of just red and green! Today we’re excited to welcome the original pastel Christmas Queen herself, Lindsey Bonnice, the creator of the whimsical world of Live Sweet. You may remember the Organic Sweet Pea Gauze™ swaddle blankets Lindsey shared this spring, but today, she’s visiting the blog to share a DIY project just in time for your holiday celebrations. If you’ve been looking for a new addition to your handmade holiday but with a twist, Lindsey’s DIY fleece gingerbread bunting is just the project you need! With this easy no-sew project, you can have your gingerbread bunting finished and on display in under an hour!

What’s the perfect no-sew project for cold weather AND tailgating? Double sided fleece blankets. This beginner level project can be made in under 30 minutes using two yards of Spoonflower’s Fleece and a pair of scissors. Personalize your blanket to your teams’ colors from our Marketplace of over 350,000 designs or design your own, and get cuddled up this season.
Illustrator, surface designer and mom (to the cutest babies we’ve ever seen) Natalie Malan stops by the blog today to show us how simple it is to make a cozy Fleece blanket — no sewing required! To make this blanket, Natalie printed one yard of new, low loft, double-faced Fleece using a watercolor design she created herself. This super simple blanket is perfect for spring picnics, adding a pop of color to your couch or bed, or swaddling a sweet little one! Check out her video tutorial below to find out how you can make one, too.
Our Fleece is a double-faced, low-loft, 100% polyester knit napped fabric. This lightweight, cozy Fleece is ideal for blankets (including no-sew-tie baby blankets), pillows, plushies, adult and youth loungewear, and cold weather apparel. Hemming is optional with this fabric as it doesn’t fray when cut, making this Fleece perfect for novice and experienced crafters alike. This fabric is engineered to show crisp design detail and long-lasting vibrant color, truly making it “not your average fleece”!
While trick or treating might not have started until the sun was beginning to set, local Spoonflower community members started their Halloween on the creative side with a morning of spooky ( and cute!) Halloween inspired crafts. Festive fabric pumpkins, wacky woven wallpaper jack-o-lanterns and fabric ghosts: these were just a few of the spooky and kooky projects created at the Kids Halloween Craft Event this past Saturday in the Spoonflower Greenhouse.
The ghouls and gals took a break from making their no sew fabric pumpkins for a trick or treat tour of the Spoonflower operations facility, complete with phantom printers and spooky employees.
Unprinted woven wallpaper was a great base for personalized ghosts!
We’d definitely consider these spooky projects ones to DIY for!
Here in the Southern United States, the heat is blazing and we’re keeping cool with lots of refreshing, icy beverages– and those beverages demand coasters! Today, Spoonflower crew member Theresa stops by to share a quick and easy tutorial for how to make your own personalized drink recipe coasters with no more than a swatch of fabric and a few handy supplies!
Now that the weather has gone from pleasantly mild to hotter than Hades in North Carolina, a tall glass of something cold and delicious on the porch to cool off is essentially part of my daily routine. Is it just me or do drinks look kind of sad and lonely sitting there by themselves? They need coasters! My wood furniture whole-heartedly agrees with me on that. I’m having the family over for dinner soon, so I thought it would be fun to put together some personalized drink recipe coasters for each of them. These would also be great for Father’s Day / Mother’s gifting or birthdays. Using the magic powers of digital printing and some tiles that cost next to nothing, I put each of my family member’s favorite drink recipes right on to their very own coasters. Let’s begin!
We’re so excited to share a tutorial from Rae Friis at Armommy on how to make fabric-covered buttons from a fat quarter of pretty patterned circles, and then use them in assorted cute projects. Enjoy the DIY ideas that Rae shared with us below, and then head on over to her blog to view one more button project!
Rae: Today’s post is all about buttons! If you haven’t made these fabric-covered cuties before, you are in for a
real treat. Why do I love them so much? They’re super-easy to make, require few supplies and once you’ve finished making some, there are endless ways to use them. I’ll get into some project ideas in a bit, but first a button-covering tutorial…. [Read more…] about Fabric-covered button projects
