When I spotted these plush globes in the CRAFT Flickr pool , was curious how Spoonflower user Weavingmajor created the flat printed fabric. Well it turns out that it’s a pattern/design you can get printed on Spoonflower, the you-upload-it-we-print-it service, with the sewing pattern right on the fabric. What a clever way to put together a project kit! You can buy a fat quarter, enough for a 6″ globe, for $11.
