If you like to sew your own items from patterns here are a couple of mock ups I've created at Sprout Patterns to give you an idea of how you can use my Spoonflower patterns at Sprout.

This is how Sprout Patterns works: 
 So you create an account at Sprout, or, if you already have a Spoonflower account you can log in with that e-mail and password, then select a clothing pattern and chose a textile design from Spoonflower - hopefully one of mine, and to find the number of one of my designs you would have to go to my SPOONFLOWER SHOP  first - chose the design you want to use then locate the number at the end of the pattern url address - for instance the pattern above is - so the pattern number you need to plug in at Sprout would be 458431 and ta dah my Elizabethan Quartrefoil shows up and you buy my design already laid out on the fabric in the pattern pieces ready to cut and sew - no messing about with paper patterns! How amazing is that?
"With Sprout, simply choose your sewing pattern from our curated collection of indie patterns, then fill the pattern with your fabric design of choice from Spoonflower’s marketplace. Select your size, features and fabric, then relax while your order is printed by Spoonflower and shipped to you. You will receive a package that includes a digitally printed custom sewing pattern—all you need to do is cut and sew!" Sprout Patterns

Thanks for taking a look see - see you soon, Patricia
