For my sister's upcoming baby shower, we have decided on a cupcake theme. Unfortunately, all cupcake party supplies seem to have HAPPY BIRTHDAY written all over them. So, it is a given that a lot of the decorations and what not will be handmade.
To get the fabric I would need to make the things, like banners, napkins, tablecloths, etc. I am using my new favorite website, spoonflower.com .
You design your own fabric, they print it, you get it. It is amazingly high quality, and somewhat fast. The only downside is the cost (starting at $18 a yard) is more than I normally spend on fabric.
Step 1: Open File in Gimp
I like to use Gimp for photo editing because it's easy, and FREE to download.
You can download it here:
Spoonflower wants uploads to be at 150 dpi. So, under "FILE" at the top of the page, click on "NEW." When the box comes up, you determine the size. I want my image to be a 2 inch square. Under advanced options, you need to change it to 150 dpi. That means 2 inches on the computer will be 2 inches on the fabric.
