A quick clarification: I've won the Connecting Threads contest twice but neither of those contests were in any way connected to Spoonflower. Connecting Threads and Spoonflower have never been co-sponsors of a contest. SF was nice enough to work with CT the first time I won their contest by offering a bundle of fabrics to a lucky winner that included fabrics from my first collection at CT and hand-picked designs of mine at SF. My first design win at CT is no longer under license at CT and can be found here at SF: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/699357 My second win at CT was a design I won first place here at SF and then went on to win at CT. It is not available for sale as fabric at SF (but is available as wallpaper and gift wrap). You can find the wallpaper/giftwrap here: http://www.spoonflower.com/giftwrap/2268909 and the fabric collection here at CT: http://www.connectingthreads.com/cfFabric/collection_list.cfm?id=129&media=BE101115&elink=1--Daylight-Palette&utm_source=media&utm_medium=bem&utm_campaign=BE101115&utm_content=1--Daylight-Palette Thank you so much Abby and Spoonflower!

You know how you can win a design contest? Design a stellar design. Believe me all the designers that have won before have far more losing entries than winning design entries. Popular designers are popular because they have excellent skills and design great fabrics. The rest of us get better because we recognize that to become popular we'd better have good designs. More than 1/2 of the current Top 10 have never had a design in the Top 10 that I can remember...how did they get into the Top 10 unless they had a stellar design? btw, congrats to all the Top 10 for having fabulous designs!

OMG, I want one! AS a youth I'd drive to Newport Beach, CA and my memories are of vans with painted beach scenes, surfboards, puka shell necklaces and teeny bikinis. This bike would STILL fit in at the beach.
