Pantone just released their color of the year, Greenery! We knew we had to pay homage by including it in a sewing-themed limited color palette contest. Please use hex code #88B04B (greenery) #000000 or #FFFFFF (black, white or both) & ONE color of your choice. Please use full opacity of greenery & black. Previewed at a 21" x 18" fat quarter, must repeat. See blog.spoonflower.com for more details.


Overview

Did you know that January is National Hobby Month? As the new year begins, we all set new goals and refocus on learning new things, improving, and challenging ourselves with hobbies. Here at Spoonflower we are proud to enable your hobbies whether that’s design, sewing, or both! To celebrate this month, we’re launching a design challenge each week that’s inspired by a creative hobby (with a twist, of course). Are you up to the challenge?

Prizes

One popularly voted grand-prize winner will receive $200 in Spoonflower credit. The 2nd place winner will receive $100 in Spoondollars. The 3rd place winner will receive $50 in Spoondollars. The rest of the top 10 winners will receive $20 in Spoonflower credit. The top 25 popularly voted designs (provided the designers are already verified sellers) will be automatically made available for sale in the Marketplace where they will receive 10% commission on every sale — no $5.00 swatch required! In addition to cash prizes, the top 10 will receive additional exposure in our email newsletters, professional photography of their printed designs, and social media mentions.
