Sprout Patterns

So there’s a really cool new site out there! The perfect blend of technology and fabric. (And full disclosure here, I helped bring it into existence, so I might be biased. 😀 )

So, you know that horrible part of sewing where you actually have to pin that awful tissue paper to fabric, and it rips and wrinkles, and half the time you can’t tell which way the grain-line arrows were pointing? And god help you if buy your pattern online and you also have to line up and tape together every single sheet of 8.5″x11″ of paper first.

Now imagine for a moment that you didn’t have to do any of that. Imagine that the lines were simply printed on the fabric like magic.

Yes. Its true. Sprout Patterns can do that for you.

They’ve partnered Spoonflower with a bunch of indie pattern makers so that you can not only actually print the pattern lines on the fabric with your design, you can also even see your chosen pattern in 3D before you even buy it!


Now here’s the best part. Until 12pm on October 30th, you can test drive a small lined pouch pattern for only $2 DOLLARS!
