They may be small, but a fat quarter is perhaps the mightiest cut of fabric. During this week’s challenge, create your very own cut-and-sew project for a fat quarter of fabric.
From dolls to pencil cases to DIY ornaments, the real question is what can’t you make with a fat quarter of fabric? To help you get started, Spoonflower designer Ceri Staziker– cerigwen in the Marketplace—is sharing seven design tips for successfully creating a cut-and-sew project.
- 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
- 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
- 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
- Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
