This is the day you get your design all ready for sale. You need to name your design, write a description, choose tags, identify four main colors, and organize into a collection (optional). Spoonflower won’t allow you to sell a fabric design until you order a proof to make sure it looks the way you want it to look, so you’ll have to actually sell a fair amount of your design to make this whole thing profitable. It’s kind of a downside. It’s a good idea for those of us new to it, but once you’ve done this a while, you’re going to know how something will look when it’s printed on the fabric. Ah well.
There are a lot of different ways to do this, but I opted to only use my best pattern colors (I doubt the others would sell), shrink the pattern down a bit, and order a fat quarter. You can also put several patterns on one sampler, if you don’t expect to use the sampler (the patterns would only be 8″x8″). The fat quarter is a quarter yard of fabric, sorta, so it’ll be useful for some things.
This is day #11, but it’s going to take a while before I can post about Day #12, since I have to wait for my design to arrive. Let the waiting commence. And for my next post, I’ll share a link to my finished product!
