Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Eighties Embroidery PatternContest

Eighties embroidery pattern Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: October 03, 2012

This week we finally held a contest for embroidery patterns. For fun, we asked for designs to be reversed, thus allowing the embroiderer to see the print through the fabric and to stitch on the non-printed side. The theme? The roaring eighties. Our winner? Laurie Stevens, a designer from the UK. Congrats, Laurie!

Herb garden

We love gardening, and there's nothing that delights us more than our little herb plants! We love picking a few fresh mint leaves or rosemary sprigs with our own hands and adding them straight to a pitcher of iced tea or a bowl of pasta. This week, create a fabric design that celebrates the traditional herb garden. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014.


Match point! Create a fabric design that celebrates the sport of tennis. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.

Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
