Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Did you know about this?

Today over at MADE, the incredible Dana is spotlighting an awesome fabric design site called Spoonflower (yes, you read that right, design and print your OWN fabric!) and is even
featuring a tutorial by Stephanie at Modern Parents Messy Kids on how to use the site!

Here are a few I loved!

So, am I the only one that didn't know this type of site existed? Have you ever tried something like this? If so, how did it turn out?

I might just have to lose myself in this site over the weekend! Happy Friday!

  1. Wow! I had no idea about that site either! Perfect if you can't find what you want at the fabric store. Cool! Visiting from the blog hop, stop by and link my party if you'd like. :)
