Workin' on a Dream

Summer Flowers and Bugs in Turquoise

Summer Flowers and Bugs in Turquoise Fabric by Val's Art Studio

Dreams... We all have them. Some are old dreams, some begin as a new idea, and grow day by day until they become a passion. I'm all for making dreams come true. Well, the attainable ones, at least!

One of my dreams has always been to design fabric. Every since I began sewing, I wanted a way to make my designs complete, including the fabric... Thankfully, there are amazing places in our wonderful world we now have at our fingertips (via computer) that do, indeed, help us make our dreams come true. Spoonflower is one of those places. I have uploaded my first trial design, and am having a test swatch made, and am hoping to be able to sew with MY fabric designs very soon!

I will keep you posted!
x, Val

I think Spoonflower is pretty great, but the prices are a little too much. I can't wait to see what you sew with your fabric!!!

Wonderful, Val!! I get their e-newsletter and vote for favorites in their contests. It's a fabulous start, and soon, I'll be voting for your fabric!
