Default Spoonflower update

New order! I received an email from Spoonflower explaining their "fabric sampler". So I gambled $35 and ordered one, and I am so pleased. It took me over an hour to choose and resize pics. You can select up to 30 samples per project(one large piece of fabric). I was excited and unprepared, so I started adding photos. One space is empty because I only uploaded 29 pics! Super deal because I was paying $5 for each "swatch"! I plan to make potholders or bowl cozies. Originally, a photo quilt. I snapped a picture of the thumbnail from my invoice. This is how the piece of fabric arrived. I will do this again. I'm just a happy customer, not affiliated.
PS: If interested, I'll have to PM the instructions. I printed out the steps.

What a wonderful way to preserve memories...I’m glad you are happy with your purchase. I have saved the information for future use.

I would LOVE to know how to do this! I seached their site briefly and didn't find it. If you could post a link to the product, that would be great. Thank you!

I have stumbled through this site for a few years. I'll try to guide you.
  • free-sign up-so...sign in
  • there are 9 tabs to choose...click design and sell(I don't have anything for sale), and from the drop-down menu choose "upload your design"
  • there are 3 steps: 1. find pic on your computer. 2. confirm it's not copyrighted. 3. upload
  • this goes to "your library"
  • to find your "design library", click on "person" icon(it's black) at top (next to shopping cart icon)
that's the basics--I'm certainly Not an expert, I'm not afraid to click or backtrack or start over.
PM me if you want me to share the "fabric sampler" steps

I placed an order with Spoonflower last year and was VERY disappointed when the fabric finally arrived. It wasn't soft as a name brand company such as Moda or Riley Blake, the weave was course. Pictures were faded and pixalated. Fabric was so bad that I never did use it. Hope your experience will be different than mine.

I hear you! My first order had 18 inch seahorses all over. Huge. User error. I didn't pay attention to size when designing....My friend that loves seahorses received a quick quilt. Sorry you had a terrible experience. I didn't give up, but I am Super careful when designing now.
