Fabric Printing

Posted on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010 at 11:04 am by Kathy Filo

One of my favourite resources, Colourlovers is offering something very cool. Have you ever wanted your custom designs printed onto high quality fabric? Well, now you can! They have partnered with Spoonflower, an on-demand fabric printer that allows people to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. This is perfect for all you artsy types – you know who you are. Why not have your favorite designs printed onto fabric instead of paper! I’m thinking … I need new wall art…and curtains…and pillows….the possibilities are endless! I like how print design is overlapping with interior design today.

Browse any pattern on ColourLovers to purchase it in fabric form, or visit the Spoonflower site to check out all they have to offer.

As their website states, Spoonflower digitally prints using eco-friendly, water-based pigment inks on natural fiber textiles. No additional chemicals are used in the printing or preparation process. I love it!

  1. ah thanks for the tip Kathy – I've been using/loving ColourLovers for years now – I had no idea they could print to fabric like that.

    Mmmmm as cheesy as it sounds, I'd love an apron/oven-mitt set with nice colours/patterns on them. I have an old turquoise set but it's gotten dirty now and I can't imagine it would be hard to sew those.

    Hmmm, also the thought of fun drapes is tempting! How would you use this Kathy?

  2. Tom – isn't this cool? I have been in the mood to redecorate my place lately, first starting with repainting my fireplace. Next up is new custom wall art and pillows for Fall. Instead of just buying something generic from a box store I'd like to create my own design and have it printed. It means so much more that way – you're putting your own stamp on things. I'd like to come up with a cool way to hang the fabric too. Hmm…now you got me thinking!
