African-inspired Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: February 20, 2013

Inspired by Black History Month and the long, rich history of textile design in Africa, this week we asked competing designers to create African-inspired fabrics. The contest was full of beautiful, colorful designs. Below you'll see the top ten, headed up by a design from first-time winner <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/molipop">Molipop</a>, titled "Inspiration Africa." Congratulations to all!

Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, August 26th, 2014.

Library

Show your local library some love with this week's theme. We're celebrating books, libraries, and librarians. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.

Marching band
