Apple duvet covers + shams will be in PataPri shop next week!

I love bedding, I have almost 10 duvet covers and shams sets (4 of them are handmade by me and others are from west elm, ikea, dwell etc... I want more but they are bit pricy, someday I want to get a 100% linen bedding!!). I dont use flat sheets ( it's japanese thing, i think.) so, I change duvet cover every week. It's just feel nice, and visually refreshing.
When I started to silkscreeing, one of the thing I wanted to make was duvet cover with my own design. so I did! and now I'm happy to share my apple design duvet cover + shams with you.
I had fun printing these, took me all day to print!
It will be in my Etsy shop next week. so please take a look!

Just wanted to say that your products are very inspiring! I love the simple design and happy colors. I think I have to start to save some money so that I can order some of your pretty towels :)

Do you have some kind of education for this, or did you learn it all by yourself? I want to be a fabric designer myself. I'm 18 now and after high school I've been thinking to get into an art school. I can only wish that someday I will be as talented as you are :)

Have a nice day!

Your work is so lovely! I must say, I've also always wanted to print my own duvet cover, and now you've inspired me. It's on my list of things to do!
