Fabric Designs: Orange You Excited?

Orange fabric patterns

I love orange, and that’s why I started a new orange fabric design collection in my Spoonflower shop.

Do you know about Spoonflower? It’s an online company offering custom fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap. They use large-format inkjet printers specially designed for printing on fabric. Best of all, they use eco-friendly water-based inks on natural and synthetic fibers, and there are no additional chemicals used in the printing or prep process. Designers like me can upload original patterns to the site into my own little shop. People who love fabric can buy them!

The image above is a sheet of sample swatches that they sent to me before making this orange collection available. (There are a few more designs in the collection not shown in the photo.) I’m really happy with how saturated the colors are. The fabric pictured here is their Performance Piqué. Performance Piqué is a soft, 100% polyester knit, perfect for athletic apparel and other projects requiring a comfortable, breathable fabric with a nice drape. They have a good selection of fabric types. You can order a sample pack of all their unprinted swatches for just $1.00, and they will ship it to you free no matter where you live!

Here’s a slightly closer up view of some of the designs:

I recommend viewing them in the shop, however, because you can zoom in on them. There’s also a ruler that allows you to view the fabric with test swatch, fat quarter and yards measurements.

Make sure you check out the wallpaper and gift wrap options, too. Some are pretty fantastic looking. When you are looking at any particular design, just click the tabs for fabric, wallpaper or gift wrap to see how they look.

Have a great day!
