Spoonflower Fabric of the Week SharksContest

Sharks Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: August 10, 2011

While sharks elsewhere may be full of menace, our contest winner this week is well suited to the gentle medium of fabric. The winning design from our shark competition is "Deep Sea Beauty Contest" by Kayajoy, which makes the third win by designer Tamara Serrao of Montreal. Her previous wins came in the imaginary animals (which was actually a tie) and rain contests. Lovely work, Tamara! Read more about The Gentle Winner Of Our Shark Fabric Contest.

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.

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 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.
