peartroshkas!


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! Pin It

  7. I love your pear family, they are so gorgeous! No wonder your daughter loves them.

    And that fabric is adorable. I liked the print version, but it's even better as a fabric :-)

  8. I love these so much, the spoonflower fabric, the green, the matryushkas, the pears ( one of my favorite fruits) and the fact that you designed and made them. I can picture a whole line of fruit shaped families. Thanks for brightening my day :)

  9. They are wonderful. Love the print, and love pears in general (edible and not) so these are particularly appealing!

  10. Hey Maya,

    What a lovely pear family! I can't wait to see the workshop where such dolls are created...sometime soon. There is a Japanese story called "Momotaro" about a peach boy, but I think you have created a similar birth to a pear family!

  14. Fantastic! What a wonderful way to incorporate Lolly's fun patterns, and your son and daughter are sweet with their enthusiasm too. Hope you have a great week!

  15. How adorable! And brilliant. Combining the pears and the matryoshka. And I have to say sounds like the boy is continuing in his mother's footsteps, what with his genius peartryoshka connection. That takes a creative mind.
