The other day I was contacted by a Miss VO, who specializes in unique fabric designs. I was intrigued at the idea, but was completely amazed at how innovative the work is! The site on Spoonflower (a location that focuses on custom material) is a wealth of inspiration, especially if one is a tailor or handy with a needle and thread. If this area is a set of expertise of yours, I might suggest a trip over to Miss VO's location at Spoonflower, and take a look at the array of very impressive works there!
Additionally, once you've flexed your plastic at her location, I might suggest a peek at other individuals who have Steampunk designs at Spoonflower, specifically at: http://www.spoonflower.com/tags/steampunk...
and Victorian inspired-designs here: http://www.spoonflower.com/tags/victorian
(My thanks to VO for the lead - Kudos!)
