My package from Spoonflower arrived last week! At the start of June I blogged about my search for labels to put in the clothes I’ve been making with the intention of selling and was so when happy when I came across a tutorial for making them via Spoonflower.
So here is my logo for my clothes label, it was really hard to come up with name which expressed what I’m all about that wasn’t already taken! I uploaded this image to spoonflower and repeated it to get a fat quarter of fabric which ended up looking like this:
From the close up you can see the colours have lost some of their vibrancy, I’d read warnings before ordering my fabric that this would happen so to balance them out I made the colours extra bold in the original image.
I spent an hour one morning watching ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ (yeah I love that crap!) cutting the fabric, ironing and stitching to create these:
So happy with how smart they look once sewn in and really grateful to Sarah from ‘While they snooze‘ for the original idea of using Spoonflower to make labels!
I’m so impressed with Spoonflower’s service not only did they keep me updated on my order throughout but considering the postage from North Carolina to the UK was only $2 it arrived really quickly! There was even a cute little handwritten thank you on the invoice! I’m really tempted to design and print more fabric now! I ordered a little fabric sample book and the silk crepe is lovely quality if not a little out of my price rang at $34.20 a yard, a girl can dream though!
