Your votes are submitted only after you reach the end of the voting pages and click the button to submit your votes. We will announce the winning fabric in our email on Thursday, January 20th."

In others news, 3 yards of the dark grey colorway are now in the mail on their way towards me for the 18th jacket. The voile white work swatches however have been giving their printer some issues. It took a little while but seems to be working now, I should get that swatch a little while later in a different shipment. If the voile swatch works out I am going to order some yardage for a big wrap around fichu. Has anyone ever made a large fichu like this: http://noblegarb.com/?p=237
How much yardgage did you need? I can't really make mine angled like she did If I want to keep all of the border print.

Today I finally got my Spoon Flower Swatches in the mail!!!
This is the fabric I designed (based off of an original embroidered 18th century garment) to make a jacket with the prize money I got from winning the Craft Stylish competition: http://izodiea.livejournal.com/27274.html
The Floral border will be placed at the hem of the jacket, with the rest being stripey goodness :)

Now that I have done tests I can officially open my spoon flower store: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/izodiea
Right now I am only offering one fabric in two colorways (the best of the test swatches) but I have more swatches already coming in the mail. If those work out I will slowly expand to more styles/colors. For example, one of the swatches is of the above design, but done in such a way that when printed on voile it will look like faux white work embroidery.

On a side note, Spoonflower briefly "forgot" that I had Won the contest (Even after I mailed them all the legal papers they requested I fill out) As an appology they gave me an extra $25 credit. Kinda weird...but better for me in the end I suppose, it covered all the swatches :)
