I’ve resisted local fabric printing company Spoonflower for years. Reason one, I work in vintage and reclaimed materials; and two, printing your own custom fabrics seemed like such a slippery slope for a fabric collector like me.
And here’s the finished product : My sister’s Asparagus Vinaigrette Mimosa recipe (circa 1980s) on a kitchen towel for her daughter Becky.
I’ll admit I had some trouble with Spoonflower’s directions. I’m good at simple Photoshop. But I’m not used to the Pic Monkey program Spoonflower uses and there’s a learning curve. Plus, I got the orientation for a fat quarter wrong my first time out. Those misprints will become pot holders. (Like I said, I used reclaimed).
But my second printing effort–priceless. A cotton/linen kitchen towel with something so personal, my sister’s handwriting. It’s like having a little bit of her always in the kitchen.
Spoonflower, I’ll be back for more!
