How to Choose the Perfect Knit Fabric for Your Handmade Garment

One of the most common questions we get from the garment sewing community about Spoonflower fabric is: “Which knit is right for me?” With five different options ranging from organic cotton to Lycra®, and two-way stretch to four-way stretch, there’s something for every project. But where to start? Our handmade garment gal Meg of MEGMADE Sewing is here to help answer that question! Meg: Hello, everyone! I’m so delighted to be back on the Spoonflower blog talking all about knit fabrics and how to use them for adult apparel. Spoonflower has long been a source for whimsical, novelty or eccentric...

Desperation is the biological parent of pure genius – that’s how the saying goes, right? However it goes (though I’m pretty sure I’m right), there were more than a handful of desperate moments while pulling my house together for shooting the reveal...

A lot of them were money induced moments, like “we need a big piece of art to go here, but can’t really afford a big piece of art.” But there were also a few day of shooting moments of desperation. Some solid “how do I fill this weird space of wall I’ve created?” and “I still can’t stand to look at this!” moments. All of which lead to us DIY-ing our fair share of little projects. And about a handful of those were actually pretty successful, which are the ones I’m going to share with you today. Welcome to my...

Halloween, aka the spooky-lover’s Christmas, can often come with a lot of stress and pressure due to all the decision making and creative efforts that go into it

Sadly, since the best aspect of Halloween – the good ol’ days of trick-or-treating – are no longer a viable option for most of us (sorry age restrictions, but I will never NOT want those king-size Kit-Kat bars from a random neighbor), costumes and costume parties are where it’s at now.

I’m one of the biggest Halloween fans of them all — I live for all-things spooky, and I love dressing up and going to parties and getting to ditch my usual going-out clothes for something exciting and different

But more often than not, big costume plans turn into scrambling to put something together two hours before the bar crawl I’m going on and, for the third year in a row, ending up being Rachel Green once again (buying a Central Perk apron was the gift that keeps on giving!). While during Halloweekend, our Insta feeds will be flooded with celebs in costumes that took teams of makeup artists and custom costumes to create, it doesn’t mean that a great costume has to be a result of a ton of planning and money. There are plenty of costumes that...
