Late last month I designed some of my first patterns to sell on Spoonflower. It had been on my to-do list for quite some time and happy to say I can now cross it off the list. I learned that when you design for Spoonflower you cannot make your patterns public or for sale until you order a test swatch, or Swatch Sampler, as they call it. “Swatches ordered on samplers meet the pre-swatching requirement for selling designs in the Spoonflower Marketplace.”
Being that it was the holiday season, I started with creating a Christmas collection, even though I knew that by the time I received the swatches (roughly 15 days) that the season would practically be over. Well today my Spoonflower Christmas swatch sampler arrived. And since I ordered a swatch of nearly 30 patterns, I received a large sheet of fabric, about 43″x60″, with 8″x8″ squares of all my designs.
Once you receive your order, you can then go into your design library and set your designs to public and/or for sale. Now my first collection of fabric is live and available in a new Spoonflower shop at http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/lesrubadesigns.
