20% Off Petal Fabric

No one appreciates getting cozy quite like gnomes, preferring to nestle into subterranean caves and nooks. Although we hear they DO love to travel.... Entries will be previewed on a 21" x 18" fat quarter and should repeat.


Overview

To celebrate the arrival of cozy season, we’re offering loungewear / athleisure patterns from our sister brand Sprout Patterns as prizes for the top 3 winners of each week’s challenge!

One popularly voted grand-prize winner will receive a Rumi Tank Top sewn with white glove service from Sprout Patterns. In addition, the grand-prize winner will receive $200 in Spoonflower credit. The 2nd place winner will receive a Rumi Tank Top from Sprout Patterns, along with $100 in Spoonflower credit. 3rd place will receive a Rumi Tank Top from Sprout Patterns, along with a $50 Spoonflower credit. 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.
