Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Imaginary AnimalsContest

Imaginary animals Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: June 01, 2011

It had to happen sooner or later, right? But with 193 entries in our Imaginary Animals Fabric Of the Week competition it still seems surprising that we have two designs in an exact tie for first place. Fine Feathered Friends by kayajoy and Fantanimals by melisza, two terrific fabrics by designers who have each won one previous contest, received exactly the same number of votes. Congratulations to the designers --Tamara Serrao of Montreal and Melissa Wang of Singapore -- both of whom now have $100 in Spoondollars to spend on lovely fabric. Well done!

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.

sewing notions

Everyone has a little something that helps them when they get in a pinch, and for the sewist, it’s their box of sewing notions!
