On July 10, 2014 I placed an order for 1 yard of organic cotton print fabric from Spoonflower.  I was turned on to this supplier by a post from Colleterie about using their fabrics for sportswear.

On Spoonflower’s site, you can take any pattern you like and have it printed onto the fabric you want – whether it’s a quilting cotton, an organic knit, jersey or even faux suede or silk crepe de chine.  I like interesting tee-shirts for working out in – most workout gear doesn’t fit me that well, and I’m not keen on it showing every lump and bump.  So I lean towards patterns which do camouflage things a bit, and by making my own tee’s, I can size them to skim over the lumpy bits.  Sadly, my local fabric stores don’t carry much in the way of patterned cotton knits, and nothing in the way of organic cotton.

Received the fabric on August 1 – so not bad, considering it had to make its way from the US to Canada.  I found their service to be great, and the shipping charges were surprisingly reasonable.  I also ordered a sample booklet, which gives you a small swatch of all the different fabrics that you can have your pattern printed on.

I will definitely order from Spoonflower again.
