Hi Zan, I'm sorry to hear you are having a hard time getting your design to rank for "damask." Adding some more descriptive keywords to your description is a great idea. Also, don't overlook the importance of tags. I took a look at your design and the tags you are using. Try adding in some other tags such as "demask" by itself and check the tag strength against what you're seeing with your current tags. If you look at the example provided in the blog above some keywords are stronger than others and you can tell by how full the green bar is. Hopefully making some of the suggested changes will help your design be more searchable. Good luck!

a dark colored fabric would definitely help hide dirt-- but when you're out in the garden, a little dirt is just par for the course! This can definitely be used for any kneeling task, including sewing projects in which one is working on the floor because it's the only work surface big enough! :)

This post was originally written 2 years ago, and let me tell you it has seen its share of mud and dirt since then and is no longer looking this bright white! A great option would be to use a Drylok bag: http://www.advantek.com/products/barrier-bags.php or to just sew this project (in any old fabric) and create a separate cover that you could take off and wash

As long as you apply the Mod Podge correctly, they shouldn't! The Mod Podge creates a moisture barrier.

Thanks for being a compassionate and responsible consumer, Maureen! Spoonflower has let our state governor Pat McRory know that we oppose this bill and that among many other things, it's bad for our economy. We have posted on social media to our large audience (no doubt alienating a few customers along the way who don't share our view) and are being as vocal as we can in letting our community know where we stand.

Thank you Lana for your support! It means a lot! We think that embracing diversity and keeping our LGBT friends comfortable and safe is pure common sense. We're just sad that our state government disagrees.
