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.
