Spoonflower Fabric of the Week MilitaryContest

Military Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: November 09, 2011

We asked contest participants to come up with military-themed fabrics in honor of Veterans Day. The winner, Celia Malm of Iowa, managed to put together a fabric design that honors the greatest generation in a way that is both fitting and quite personal. Her The Greatest Generation fabric was created using old postcards and photos from her own family members who served during WWII. Be sure to check Celia's terrific design as well as the rest of the top ten. Read more about Honoring the Greatest Generation of Fabric: The Winner of Our Military Contest.

Floral coloring book wallpaper

At Spoonflower, we like to keep our childlike creativity and curiosity alive. That's why we're oh so excited about this week's contest: floral coloring book wallpaper. Create a black and white design that is ready for crayons, pencils, and markers to go wild. Designs are intended for wallpaper, but previews will be sized as a quarter yard of fabric (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is April 22nd, 2014.

Moms recipe tea towels

No matter where you live in the world, nothing spells comfort like a home cooked meal from your mom or grandmother. Celebrate the important culinary women in your life this Mother's Day by designing a lovely recipe just like mom used to make. Recipes should fit a fat quarter-yard of our Linen-Cotton Canvas fabric. Entries will be previewed at the scale of a fat quarter (27" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, April 29th, 2014.

Terrariums

Terrariums are the perfect way to bring the outdoors in, and inject a little plant life into your home. No wonder people are crazy about them. This week, create a design that celebrates terrariums, previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 6th, 2014.

Crayon-drawn monsters

It's time to dust off the crayons, we're going 'old school' (kindergarten, that is!) for this week's contest. Create a monster design by hand, using only crayons (the kind you'd doodle with as a kid). Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 13th, 2014.
