2 for 1 Fat Quarters at Spoonflower

It’s that time again when you can get 2 for 1 fat quarters at Spoonflower! The buy one get one free offer applies to all fabric so here’s a few options featuring my characters.

2018 Tea Towel Calendars

2018 Tea Towel Calendars

The main reason this offer always happens in November. Tea towels are quick to sew up and make great gifts since it’s something they can use all year. If you have crafty friends, you could even make them a little kit with the fabric, a piece of ribbon for a hang tag, matching sewing thread and a pair of embroidery scissors. I have eight cute designs available now and they’ve all been updated for 2018.

Cut and Sew Projects

While all my cut and sew patterns are sized to fit on a swatch, if you have them printed on Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra fabric, you’ll get 6 (of the same design) on a fat quarter. That makes it a good value option for gifts as you can make mini pillows, coin purses or gingerbread man ornaments for everyone.

Patterned Fabric

And of course, there’s simple patterned fabric featuring my kawaii characters. There are so many different fabric bases to match any any sewing project, whether you’re a hand quilter or dressmaker. I’ve organised my designs into lots of collections, so you can browse by theme, including mini prints, sweet treats and Christmas.

The 2 for 1 offer ends at midnight EST on Thursday so you’ve got a little bit of time to decide what to buy. Send me a photo if you make something with my fabric – I love seeing what you use it for!
