Spoonflower: DIY Fabrics

I mentioned this on my Gstudio blog, but its worth repeating here, simply because its such a cool idea. If you love to sew, and have a knack for illustration, or graphics, and if you ever wished you could get your designs on fabric, Spoonflower provides a way to do it yourself (DIY), and for a relatively low cost per yard. You can even sell your designs on the Spoonflower website if you choose. Their method is a large digital printer that prints your design on fabric, similar to the way your inkjet printer works at home. You can get all the details on the Spoonflower website. I've already started to design some prints for custom fabrics to use in my Gstudio bags! Once I do a test, I'll let you know how it came out, and add any new tips I find about the process. Have fun with it!

New Buttons are Here

They are shiny black, and ultra cool. A fun way to spread awareness. Find them at my CafePress shop in 10-packs or singles. I also have them in smaller handfulls of 6 on my new Etsy shop. They make fun gifts, fit in your pocket to take with you for spontaneous handouts, party favors... Stop by one of my shops next time you're feeling indie-pendent.

Follow the Blogger

Google members can now follow this blog. Click the follow button in the sidebar. Other ways to follow me are in my previous post ("Twitter Followers!").

Twitter Followers!

It's been just a few days since I set up my Twitter account, and people are following... many are artists selling their work on (I love Etsy!). Thanks for following!

On Twitter I follow other independent designers, artists, and organizations showing  the "indie spirit" and I often re-tweet info I find interesting, useful and supportive.


I think using Twitter will help get this new project off the ground... I am also on Facebook. When you visit my Facebook Page, be sure to click the Become A Fan button, to get my updates on your wall, or contribute.


I know my efforts so far have paid off - two people near Portland, Oregon shopped at my online store, and are wearing my T-shirt and a cap around, and someone is passing out Buy Indie! buttons in Chico, California! It just makes me happy that my Buy Indie! logo is "out there."

You can also check out my shop on CafePress, to get yourself some Buy Indie! gear!
