141: Spoonflower needs your VOTE!…

Well actually I need your votes for ……Punk Andy….my first ever printed yard of fabric.  This was printed for me by the fine people at Spoonflower for a measly $18 a yard…..okay so $18 a yard of fabric isn’t such a measly price, but for your very own design, well, it is really fun!      So I had this printed for me..and then they started a contest for the “fabric of the week”…So I thought, hey this design is pretty good, I think I will go ahead and submit it for the contest.   I did that about 6 weeks ago I think.   I did NOT think I would get to be in the running so soon, but I am!!   This coming week between now and the evening of the 18th of January…..the world gets to vote between 6 designs, one of which is Punk Andy  as seen here:        (Altoids tin thrown in for scale) 

 and here is a closeup:      

So what Andy and I need are for you to go to the Polling Booth at Spoonflower and click on the Fabric of the Week button and vote for Punk Andy by Blue Nickel Studios.  If I win, I can offer a free fat quarter of this one of a kind fabric….so You could have some Andy’s floating around in your artwork as well!   🙂

Thanks for stopping by the Blue Nickel.  I have another batch of brand new fabric coming this week from Free Spirit for another one of their free online quilt patterns.  This fabric is so new, I am not even sure when I can show you.  I will have to get the okay from the higher-ups, but I am sure you will like it.  It is very flowery, yet somewhat whimsical too.    When I get the okay, I will show you…..it’s not even on their special preview pages for retailers yet, it is so new!

Have a great new year…..

Oh, and go over to Melissa’s and give her a blog-hug, okay?  She had a bad day on Sunday! 


  • Great fabric – it doesn’t necessarily fit ever-so-special taste but I think it’s great (and would look fantastic in an apron) and I’m excited that you printed your own fabric. I will definitely go give you a vote.

    I already visited Melissa’s blog – she is on my subscription list.

  • Well, you have at least one vote! 😉 I also like inkdot, but I’m surprised something like that isn’t already out there…

    Good luck!

  • Oh yeah! That’s my kind of fabric. I love it. I reckon my little dude would look great in a shirt made with that 🙂

    I voted for you.

    Thanks, Viv! I was just thinking I would like a shirt with Punk Andy for the cuffs and collar, maybe green and white VERTICAL stripes for the body of the shirt! 🙂

  • I just checked Spoonflower…sorry you didn’t win! 🙁 Looks like there were lots of girly-girls voting! 😉 lol

    Yeah, I know. But it was fun to be on the list…sometimes the world is just not ready for truly great designs! 🙂 Thanks for voting, and a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who did vote!
