|Hoot-Hoot: Owls Win the Apron Pattern Contest
Cean Irminger of Machipongo, Virginia, becomes the latest designer to enter the elite club of three-time Spoonflower Fabric Of the Week contest winners (having won our Shoes and Snow contests previously). Her whimsical "Owl Be Darned" apron pattern took the most votes out of a whole flock of terrific designs, narrowly defeating the giant octopus apron submitted by our reigning fabric design contest champion SammyK. You can check out the top ten apron patterns on our contest home page, or...
Nautical Contest: Enough Fabrics to Deck Out A Boat
We have 112 entries in our nautical-themed Fabric Of the Week Contest. Vote for as many as you like. We'll announce the winner next Thursday.
Upcoming Fabric Of the Week Contests:
- Cheater Quilt: Create a design for a one-yard cheater quilt [definition] sized to fit onto a 42" x 36" piece of fabric. Deadline is Tuesday, June 29, 2010.
- Travel: Summer vacationing? Submit fabric designs with travel as a theme: planes, trains, cars, campers, bicycles, etc. Designs will be previewed for voting at a fat quarter size (21" x 18"). Deadline is Tuesday, July 6, 2010.
- Look for an upcoming contest theme post on the Spoonflower blog by the end of the week!
In other news: Organic Sateen is back in stock. We are still taking much too long to deliver orders. Some folks in Europe are having trouble getting to Spoonflower (here's a possible fix). And... in July we're going to try to move to a new location -- more on that later! Hope you all are staying cooler than us.
Cheers from the extremely hot Spoonflower HQ,
