Ever thought you could have a life as a textile designer? SPOONFLOWER now allows you to live your dream. There’s no minimum and pricing is $18-32 per yard depending on how much you order. There’s also a weekly fabric design contest; the winner receives a $100 credit that can be applied to purchases on Spoonflower. Love it! Time to get crackin’ on my own submissions….
