Spoonflower Fabric of the Week DesertContest

Desert Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: August 04, 2010

No fewer than three of the top ten designs in our desert-themed Fabric Of the Week contest feature armadillos, which raises the possibility that these quirky little creatures could soon rival owls for hipness. Congratulations to long-time Spoonflowerer Vo are in order, as she won the contest with her fabulous "Armadillos wandering the desert in an disorderly fashion" fabric. Lovely work!

Upcoming contests

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.
