Free Swatch Day on Spoonflower

Yes, get in quick as for today only, you can get two free fabric swatches from Spoonflower printed with your own design! I only remembered about this last night but it didn’t take me long to sort out some new patterns as it was one of my resolutions this year so I’ve been working away on things now and then.

I ended up with four designs and couldn’t decide which two to get so I just got them all. I can’t wait til they arrive! If the colours turn out good then I’ll  be putting them all up for sale in my shop as print on demand fabric, like my Vintage Buttons fabric. Exciting!
