Ticket Stub Fabric

April 2nd, 2015 by Cobwebs

Ticket Stub PillowsThis is a neat, fairly simple way to commemorate a favorite concert or similar memento: Scan them, upload the images to Spoonflower, and print them out on fabric.

Redditor Sunflower_Fortunado posted some that her mother had turned into throw pillows, and noted in the comments that her mom had used the service previously to make kitchen towels out of a handwritten recipe and given them as gifts.

Someone else in the comments suggested making a quilt, which is a neat idea but could get expensive if you custom-printed a lot of different tickets. A repeat print of a single ticket would be interesting fabric for a dress or shirt, too.

If you’ve saved ticket stubs from a special occasion, this would make a really thoughtful gift; one of the other thread commenters said that his wife still had the movie tickets from their first date, and he was going to have fabric made from them.

Throw pillows require minimal sewing skills, so even a novice should have no trouble turning out an attractive, very personalized, decorating accessory.

    Oooh, that’s a cunning idea. Even if it was pricy, it could be worth it for a special present.

    I really want to this this for my mom, now. She still has her ticket from when she saw the Beatles in’64!

    A warning on Spoonflower fabrics: I’ve used both the plain cotton and the cotton sateen, and they’re both scratchy. Not so scratchy you can’t wear them, but enough so that you might regret spending so much.

    This would be cool to make a pillow for each of my kiddos for Christmas or something. We just went to Disneyland last month.
