Essential Cottons Sale + Free Shipping

This month, two of our contests will ask artists to create a design that coordinates with a collection of three colors available soon as Petal Signature Cotton® Solids.


Overview

Coming in September, Petal Signature Cotton Solids are new 100% cotton solid dyed fabrics that make it easier than ever for makers to coordinate with their favorite Spoonflower designs.

​​Our Research & Development team worked hard to identify RGB hex codes that perfectly match our Petal Signature Cotton Solids. This week, create a design that utilizes the colors Lagoon (#2F909F), Mustard (#C3932B), and/or Cotton Candy (#F1D2D6) to use alongside the Petal Solids fabrics.

These fun, gender-neutral colors are sure to spark joy for whatever sewing or craft project they are used for! Imagine your design along these three colors used in projects like a quilt, for kids apparel or a color-blocked tote bag.

An Important Note About Your Design Challenge Entry

Artists must use 1, 2 or all 3 colors from the provided Petal Solids hex codes colors Lagoon (#2F909F), Mustard (#C3932B), Cotton Candy (#F1D2D6). Additional colors are ok to use, but we recommend keeping it simple with no more than 4 colors total (not including black and white) to ensure your design coordinates well with the colors Lagoon, Mustard and Cotton Candy.
