Through noon EST on Friday, August 27th Spoonflower is offering one free swatch of fabric (regularly $5) through their website. It's a great opportunity to try out their custom-printing service. You can choose from loads of pre-existing designs, use their tools to create your own, or download a design from a JPEG file.
One more great thing about this offer is that, if you wish, you can make a donation to Heifer International of the regular $5 swatch fee, or whatever other amount you'd like!
I've been interested in trying out Spoonflower's service for a while. I started experimenting with pattern design using some of my photos and found one I think (hope?) will look good on their cotton voile (It doesn't look like much when small, so click on photo to enlarge):
I'm thinking a scarf for a finished product if I end up ordering some full yardage.
