I got my start in online design contests doing tee shirts back in the day, so it was especially fun to merge tee shirts with fabric design in Spoonflower’s 2017 T-Shirt Design Challenge.
It was tricky picking a 3-color scheme that would work on both light and dark shirts, but a lot of fun to think of all the things to put in my The Craftroom fabric, from spools of thread to googly eyes to a swatch of one of the first fabrics I designed at Spoonflower. I’m pleased to say my design came in 8th, against some very lovely competition.
I’m already thinking about ways I can use all the bits and pieces from The Craftroom in other projects – you might be seeing that sweet little bird in a blockprint sometime soon!

Yesterday’s Nerdist Home Geekonomics post about stocking stuffers featured a pen holder made by Door Number 9 out of my Old Friends library circulation card fabric.
I’m consistently amazed (and pleased!) by how popular this fabric is — I think it taps into some deep nostalgia in this digital age — and love to see the things people make from it.
