It was a no-brainer when the folks at Spoonflower asked if I wanted to make a social tote out of their fabrics. Well, almost a no-brainer. My one fear was getting totally lost in all the creatively unique designs in their marketplace–that part would be no easy decision! But I managed to whittle down a long list of favorites and am so pleased with how it turned out. My wonderful Mom ended up putting it together and did an awesome job! Thanks, Mom!

Here are links to the fabrics I ended up using.

And Noodlehead is doing a giveaway over at her blog, so if you haven’t already I think there’s still time to enter.

    […] Whenever I pick things from Spoonflower, I tend to go for interesting/fun choices, because they have so many in their marketplace. I was intrigued by this swatch print, because of its play on print. I knew that it wouldn’t be a boring sew. (Of course, there’s arguably the biggest benefit of Spoonflower, which is that you can design your own fabric–so there’s that direction you could take too.) […]
