Lovely leaves

I love a leaf print and have designed many leaf prints for my Spoonflower shop. One of may favourites is this acorn and leaf print which comes in a pleasing autumnal colour palette of brown, orange, red and purple, with a shot of soft pink.

This print looks great as acorn dinner napkins and can be bought in a soft sateen fabric or in a linen cotton canvas fabric.

This leaf print has been designed in the style of a woodblock print and includes a selection of leaves such as gingko leaves, oak leaves and acorn leaves.

This print looks great as a throw blanket which comes in a soft minky fabric.

The maple leaf print comes on a brown background in a colour palette of yellows, oranges and purples. Some of the leaves have a geometric texture added.

The maple leaf tablecloth comes in a variety of square and rectangle sizes as well as a round version.

This leaf print embraces a host of woodland images including leaves, mushrooms and berries. It comes on a cream background but can also be bought on a brown or khaki green background.

It looks great as leaf print placemats and comes in a choice of fabrics - soft sateen fabric, a linen cotton canvas or a cypress cotton canvas.

Kimono scarf

Check out this stunner! It's a kimono scarf made from a selection of kimono fabrics pieced together to create a truly original silk scarf and it makes a great gift for a Japanophile.

Whilst living in Japan, I amassed a large selection of vintage kimono fabrics that I bought at the shrine sales around Tokyo. Each piece has been carefully chosen by me to create a stunning item.

For this kimono scarf I chose a selection of orange, red and cream kimono fabrics.

Most of the fabrics in this kimono scarf include birds, flowers or leaves.

The scarf changes in look and style depending on which way you wear it.

If you look closely you will see that one of the fabric pieces includes a stylised peacock design.

This kimono scarf would make a great gift for someone special or just keep it for yourself instead!

 Halloween is over but you can still enjoy these merry monsters from another planet!

They look great as an alien cushion cover and perfect for decorating a child's bedroom.

Why not go the whole hog and use alien bedding too?!

Alien wallpaper adds a fun element and could be used on a statement wall in a kid's bedroom.

Matching alien curtains too!

Herb heaven

During September I dipped into the @ellolovey drawing challenge on Instagram. It's great for getting the creative juices flowing and nice to design something for myself. Many of the designs I create for these drawing challenges also end up being used in my Redbubble shop and in my Spoonflower shop.

One of the prompt words for September was 'herbs' so I drew this collection of my favourite herbs on a textured blue background which you can find on my @cheekyleopard Instagram page. It includes rosemary, sage and dill.

From the initial illustration, I then created a repeat pattern with can be found by-the-metre in my Spoonflower shop as well as on a wide selection of ready-made items.

This print looks great on an apron, available in my Redbubble shop. It makes a great gift for a chef or avid home cook. The print also comes as a spiral notebook, perfect for jotting down inspiring recipes. This would make a great gift combo for the foodie in your life!

Kimono scarf

 Another stunner from the Cheeky Leopard scarf collection! This kimono scarf is made from a selection of Japanese kimono fabrics in shades of pink, red and turquoise.

This scarf looks great in many different  ways. It looks great tied in a big bow, like the one above.

Or you could drape it around the shoulders. The great thing about this scarf is that it looks totally different depending on how you drape it.

When I lived in Tokyo I spent a lot of time collecting vintage kimono pieces from the markets around the city. This meant that I developed a large collection of fabrics to use in my scarf creations.

Many kimono designs are beautifully delicate as well as being intricate. They are also printed onto lovely soft silks.

I love this colour combination of soft pinks and turquoise.

The perfect gift for a Japanophile!

 I have a great addition to the tea towel collection in my Etsy shop. It uses a print that includes ironing boards, irons and detergent in a pleasing colour palette of pink, turquoise and grey. This is a great way to brighten up the laundry room and makes a great housewarming gift too!

This tea towel is made from a lovely thick linen cotton canvas. I comes folded with a paper wrap to secure it and it is gift wrapped in pink tissue paper.

Use this tea towel in the laundry or in the kitchen.

The laundry tea towel also matches the laundry artwork and makes a great gift combo. All items are gift wrapped and an optional gift message can be included in each parcel and sent straight to its recipient.

Donut delight

 During September I dipped into the @ellolovey drawing challenge on Instagram. It's great for getting the creative juices flowing and nice to design something for myself. Many of the designs I create for these drawing challenges also end up being used in my Redbubble shop and in my Spoonflower shop. One of the prompt words was 'donut' which gave me full range to use sugary colours and sweet decoration. I've included pink icing, chocolate topping and decorative sprinkles.

This print comes on a rather fabulous donut mug design in my Redbubble shop.

And even has matching donut coasters too!

This print also comes as a repeat pattern and can be bought by-the-metre on a variety of fabrics in my Spoonflower shop.
