Happy Pear day! Last month I shared a delicious pear print from Lollychops. Remember it from the gift wrapping post? Well, Lolly went and printed it at Spoonflower! When she received her lovely fabric, she decided to ask her readers what they would make if they had a little piece of it. She chose her favorite answers and then GAVE a fat quarter to the lucky winners! What a creative way to have a give-away and share her pears! I was fortunate enough to have an idea Lolly enjoyed: pear shaped Matryoshka dolls. Here they are... the pear gals!
Thanks Lolly, your print is lovely and sewing with Spoonflower fabric is delightful! I'm hoping to design my own swatch one day soon. Inspiration is contagious. Click here for the other winning projects, so fun!
p.s. I bet you can guess how much my daughter loves these, especially that baby pear!
A quick update since I posted this: my brilliant son just said... so why didn't you call them Peartroshkas? Why? Because I'm not half as quick as he is! I'm off to edit the title... oh, and my daughter wants one more baby... with closed eyes. You can never have too many babies, I mean pears!
