Sprout Patterns is a new service that offers public indie sewing patterns that you combine with Spoonflower designs to create customized cut and sew projects. Each project is digitally printed by Spoonflower at their Durham, NC headquarters. We take out all the work of putting a sewing pattern onto fabric and leave you with the fun of creating garments and accessories.
Simply put, just choose your sewing pattern from our curated collection, then fill it with your design of choice from Spoonflower's marketplace. Select your size and type of fabric, and we do all the rest! You will receive a package that includes a digitally printed custom sewing pattern, instructions and the original PDF pattern with all sizes.
Typically when you want to sew a garment you purchased online, you need to download a PDF of the pattern, print it out, tape the pieces together (making sure everything is aligned) cut out your size, and trace it to fabric while paying attention to the number of pieces needed and direction to be placed. This is all before you even begin to cut out the fabric! Sprout removes these tedious steps, making it fast and easy to sew an entirely custom sewing project.
Sprout Patterns started as an idea among the first employees at Spoonflower who asked the question — “What if we could print out exact pattern pieces with the surface design we choose on the fabric we want?” After some creative computer magic, an entire circus ensemble was created out of digitally printed sewing patterns for the yearly Halloween costume competition.
It didn't stop at Halloween. This idea grew into a new company, a new division and “offshoot” of Spoonflower that empowers indie pattern makers and sewists in the same way that Spoonflower empowers the textile design community. Sprout Patterns provides a platform that spotlights our favorite pattern makers while encouraging creativity from the maker community and their desire to fight fast fashion.
This is Sprout Patterns.
This is cut and sew for the modern world.
