Love spells have been a staple of magick since the beginning of time. Research any witchcraft or magical tradition in any culture and you’ll find a plethora of spells for gaining love, retaining love, recovering from a broken heart, and wreaking havoc on those who would spurn love.
In most of today’s magical practices it is accepted that working spells against the will of another is verboten. Some even go so far as to state that such spells won’t work. Some reference the three-fold rule. Personally, as someone who has been victim to controlling partners, I’m not a fan of anything that tries to impose the will of one person on another.
That said, there’s a lot of other kinds of love spells one might want to work, and I have highlighted nine different Spoonflower designs below as suitable for your love spell crafty witchery. You can click on the image to go directly to the page for the design.

There is a special magic in introducing favorites to each other. I got to do that a couple of months ago when I took one of my favorite people, Moira, to one of my favorite places in Chicago, the Textile Discount Outlet. It’s three stores of fabric, trim and notions stuffed into a poorly ventilated, crowded and meandering warehouse. You can find boxes of zippers, bra fasteners, lace scraps, rolls of church brocade, velvet ribbons, toggles, brads, bells and beads. It is a sewist’s fever dream and I love it so very much. Something I found there prompted thoughts of a different kind of magic.
Next month I’ll be vending at the TINY HANDS craft show to benefit Planned Parenthood. I’m excited to be involved in this event, not only because I support Planned Parenthood and its work, but because I get to finally participate in an act of craftivism. Ever since I read Craftivism by Betsy Greer I have wanted to find ways to use my skills to make a difference.
With thoughts of resist, persist and protest in mind I collected some designs from Spoonflower together to inspire your own crafting activism. Check out the gallery below:
And if you are in the Chicagoland area, consider coming out to the craft show and supporting Planned Parenthood.
I’ve never hidden my love for unicorns. Back in middle school a group of boys gave me all sorts of grief over it, telling me to never play leap frog with a unicorn; a joke that never got funny no matter how many times they’d yell it at me. Despite this, I’ve not lost my love for Scotland’s national animal. I’m even part of a unicorn gang with several friends. We’re fun and fabulous and will cut you if you make fun of us.
So of course the very first thing I did when I happened upon Spoonflower lo these many years ago was to search for unicorn fabric. Of course the site that gives us Golden Girl Toss fabric isn’t going to disappoint. Here are nine of my current favorite unicorn designs.
