It's a Vagina, Right?

Floral Skull

So I was on Spoonflower today looking for skull fabrics... and I came across this design by lisa_godfrey. Don't get me wrong, she has some talent.  But this is ladyparts, right? I can't tell if I'm having a Freudian flashback to all of the Georgia O'Keeffe prints in every single therapist's office I've been in, or if this is intentional.

Also, good god, do I love Spoonflower. I've been on it for a couple of years now- it's a website that allows you to upload your own design and print it on a fabric.  It even allows you to edit your image (colors, repeat on the fabric, etc), which is nice if you're like me and don't have Corel or Photoshop and the like. 

There are some incredibly talented designers on there, creating individual designs and using this website as an opportunity to showcase their skill. Much like Zazzle, a designer is able to post their fabrics for sale, and earn a commission on each purchase.  I genuinely hope some previously unknown designers are getting some traction.

Then there are people like me. People who particularly enjoy the ability to break copyright law all over the place to make one of a kind fabric.  I'm not selling it though, so I think I'm in the clear. I JUST WANT TO MAKE A DR HORRIBLE QUILT IS THAT SO WRONG
