Custom Adafruit Fabric and Wallpaper from @Spoonflower
Recently we got a chance to turn Bruce Yan’s beautiful Adafruit motif toile pattern into custom fabric and wallpaper using a service called Spoonflower. We uploaded a single design and could adjust the size and tiling pattern easily using the web interface. There were many fabric choices so we picked a few:
heavy cotton twill makes great upholstery fabric
cotton silk is better for garments, pattern color inverted
The wallpaper interface shows the scale of the pattern.
