“I’ve got more than enough fabric, I really don’t need any more!” said no stitcher ever!

Like so many stitchers, I have a stash that is fit to bursting, but I can never really pass up a fat quarter of something that really sings out to me. After all, I’m going to be able to use it all up someday, am I right?

No matter how glorious your stash, no matter how many colours of the rainbow you have covered, no matter how many striking prints you have, there is always that time when you’re in the middle of a fabric pull for your next quilt, dress, home dec item and you find yourself thinking, “If only I had a something with a unicorn print/something in a mermaid tail green/something with leaf pattern that is not too big, not to small!”

For us creative folks, there is something really appealing about having the control to design your own print fabric – and you can with the fabric design service from Zazzle and its a whole heap easier than you might think!

    Love it! I’ve thought about printing some fabric in the past, but always reluctant without knowing what the quality is like. I’ll have to check these guys out 🙂
