A New Fabric Designer?

My oldest granddaughter was here visiting the other day and while she was here she spent some time doodling with markers.  As she was working I commented that her design would make a pretty fabric.  It was then that the lightbulb went on and I ran to my sewing room for a sheet of printable fabric.  Within minutes I had printed a priceless piece of one of a kind fabric!  I may be biased, but I think Miss One could make a career as a fabric designer!

You could order a yard or so of that fabric from Spoonflower.com and make her a pillowcase with her very own design! How awesome!

I second the spoonflower idea. Order enough to make her a bag or garment out of it so she can tell people she designed the fabric. She really is talented!

You may be right! she seems to have Gramma's eye for color.
