Being a Nana to 6 awesome little people,
I am constantly amazed by their
skills and abilities.
They are all so wonderful
and different at the same time.
The Sunday before last,
my oldest grandson Elijah
showed me a drawing he made.
I asked him if I could have it and he said yes :)
I quickly scanned it and went online to
Spoonflower.com to have it made into fabric.
If you've never been to Spoonflower,
you have to check it out.
You can design your own fabric (super easy)
as well as purchase designs made by others.
Pretty stinkin cool,
but not cheap.
It's $18.00 a yard (the most I've ever paid for fabric)
but for special projects it's totally worth it!
I had visions in my head of new grocery bags
as soon as I saw his drawings.
When I opened the package from Spoonflower,
I'm pretty sure I squealed out loud
because the dog looked a bit startled :)
I couldn't wait to start sewing!!!
I used green canvas for the bottom of the bag
and green polka dots for the lining and handles.
I used my all time favorite grocery bag pattern
I have several of these that I use every week
and people always ask me about where I got them.
I love using them and I love sewing them.
Totally an FTS pattern!!!
These make great gifts too :)
Here is Elijah's original artwork.
I love everything about it.
I love his spelling.
I love his eraser marks.
I love his little arrows.
I just love love love it.
I know that I will be the envy of everyone at Sprouts!!!
I ordered another yard of fabric
using this artwork but I made the graphics smaller
and staggered the layout.
I should have it next week and I'm thinking new placemats :)
I can't wait for my fabric to arrive.
Now that I know how easy it is to have fabric printed
I'll be watching out for more masterpieces from the grands
to use in projects for my home.
