Spoon & Whisk

My house is a mess and my bookkeeping hasn't been done for the last quarter but I have managed to finally do a new fabric design! Let me introduce you to "Spoon & Whisk". This is quite an achievement as my biggest frustration is not having the time to do new designs. I have so many half-finished ones in my files, I kid you not!

So I asked Curlyhead to draw some cute kitchen utensils for me as I really like her drawings. I then played around with colouring some, placement and repeats and am quite happy with this now.






I am planning to have the screen for these ready for printing early next week so am wondering about colours? I really like retro colours like burnt orange and brown.



Red prints are always popular and I know many of you like green.


For your chance to be one of the first to own some of this fabric, please let me know what colour you would like to see printed. This will be printed on hemp/organic cotton ideal for homewares and kitchen curtains. This blog giveaway will end next Friday 13th November (lucky day for someone) and the winner will win 1/2 metre of "Spoon & Whisk"




If you're in Brisbane, you will be able to acquire some of this fabric at our Open Studio Day. There will be lucky door prizes so come along. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.

oh look at them...so cute!! (am I allowed to say that!?)

Thea said...

Yes, you are allowed to say that. Can't wait for us to print them! x

Amy (badskirt) said...

Love the retro colours you mentioned near the top of the post. I think Orange perfectly suits these utensils!

Harvest Textiles said...

I'm thinking retro appliance colours like harvest gold or avocado green. Can't wait to see the prints.

Gina said...

Ooooh, I love a good whisk. But you know, I'd really love them in black or grey :-)

Beach Vintage said...

Thea these are wonderful. I think the retro colours would be fabulous.

brismod said...

I would say the funky orange and brown retro colours too. (and I reckon they would look fun in turquoise and magenta as well). Cheers Anita

KT Doyle said...

I agree with Amy - orange is a definite for this design! Nice drawing Curlyhead!

Sandrine said...

Wonderful, will be a perfect material for a pretty apron Tania style/tea towel...I have soft spot for the burn orange, good luck!xx

JenMeister said...

Orange is my fave! Looks great!

Emily Pickle said...

Love it! The orange is may favourite. I also think it would look lovely in teal. It would also co-ordinate lovely with a bit of cross hatching (maybe grey on white) for a real 50's feel.

Pesky Cat Designs said...

Love these!! I can see them in my kitchen. I love the brown print best. My kitchen has blue tones so I think the brown would work best. I also think it is the most neutral so it should work with most decor. Keep up the great work!

I like the orange, but I have a gorgeous new red mixmaster, so I'd love to win some red! Beautiful!

EcoInspired said...

I like the orange and brown colour. A pea green colour would look great, I think.

Georgi said...

I love the mushroom/ brown/ grey colour. What do you call that colour? Purely because it had many more applications than the prighter colours in this instance as the utensil images are so cute, I enjoy seeing the form without the colour distraction.

Great design & great colorways as well! I agree with most of the others & like the orange too. Really suits the design. I also like the green!

Tracey said...

Oh, I am going with the burnt orange. The design looks great!

Kate said...

I came back to check them out again. I thought I'd left a comment but obviously not. I love them and think they'd look great in a dark red or dark green.

Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love said...

I am obsessed with pink!! so I think a really hot pink would be delicious!! :)

Freshly Found said...

Lovely! I am a red girl when it comes to prints like this! My second option would be lime green!

Searching for Sporadic Surprises said...

My favourite is the orange but I'd also love to see them in tiffany blue and olive green.

Little Mary Moo said...

Dear me, I have to go with my traditional love and the colour I would love to see the design in would be red. I would love a neat little apron made with this print.

carmel said...

it looks like the perfect fabric to use around the kitchen!
i liked the yallow brown and green ones. probly will look good in dark blue and grey
