Not Your Typical Ditsy Print! My "Tutti Frutti" Design For This Week's Spoonflower "Delicious Ditsy" Design Challenge!
A DITSY print is a tiny-scale overall pattern that has a tossed or non-directional layout. I don't know about you, but when I think of ditsy prints I usually picture sweet little scattered flowers (ditsy prints don't have to be floral, btw) in pretty colours...For this week's Spoonflower "Delicious Ditsy" Design Challenge, I entered my new "Tutti Frutti" design! And I must say, a typical ditsy print, this is NOT!!
Love it as cocktail napkins or as a tablecloth (see below), but wouldn't it make a FUN APRON?! Voting opens Thurs Nov 17 and you can link to the Voting Page HERE!
AND I couldn't resist...I had to make those Bananas and Berries into their own designs too! So scroll down to see my new "Banana-rama" and "Polka Berries" designs. All 3 coordinate together into my "Fruit-Tastic" Collection, and you can get them on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in 3 sizes in my Spoonflower Shop! See the FRUIT-TASTIC COLLECTION in my Spoonflower Shop!

This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Unexpected Still Life Wall Hangings". Here is my entry, called "Flower Burst" which is also sized for Tea Towels on a Fat Quarter fabric size! I just decided to go crazy with flowers for this one. I entered the first Teal and Coral Orange one because it was the only one I managed to finish before submissions closed (adapted from a repeat pattern I created a little while ago), but I did create it in two other colourways too (see below)! All 3 colourways, Teal and Coral Orange, Purple Red Pink and Moody Neon Brights, are now available in my Spoonflower Shop! Do you have a favourite?!

This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Recipe Wall Hangings" and I was a bit stumped with what to do. But then I remembered I had created an illustrated recipe for this warming and delicious "African Yam and Peanut Soup" a little while ago, but then archived it. So I had a look at it and started fooling around with it...radically changed the colours, altered the layout, changed the text a bit...Then I thought, "Hey! I'll enter it!" So here it is, as entered!
Go have a look at the designs this week, they're all sized specifically for Spoonflower Wall Hangings and Tea Towels (on a Fat Quarter size)! You can link to the Voting Page HERE. As always, I would love your vote for this one! Voting opens tomorrow Thursday October 6.
If you like, you can see this design in my Spoonflower Shop! It might make a nice gift for that upcoming, ahem, holiday...
If you're curious, I thought it would be interesting for you to see the original colours and layout of this design (see below). I LOVE how it is always possible to breathe new life into a design. As they say, NEVER throw anything away! I originally designed this illustrated recipe for the "They Draw" website (when it was still called "They Draw and Cook").
