To. crafter and fabric lover

Thank you so much everyone for left comments!!
I will post winners tomorrow.
I said I will do this every week, but I will give away all at once.
so I will pick 7 people out of 35 people who left comments by Amidakuji which is very fair.
good luck!

I have printed soo many towels, and now I have many fabrics that I can't use for towels in my closet because they are misprinted.
I saw wonderful give away at my favorite textile designer Lara @ kirin&co, and I thought that's so great! so, I'm doing same thing to show my appreciation to everyone who like PataPri textiles.
Some of them are close to perfect, some disaster. Printed area is size of towels, so it's not big fabrics but I'm sure you could make something out of it. They haven't sew nor wash after print.
I will put together 10 misprinted towels of variety of design every week until they are all gone.

how to participate is just to leave a comment here, and tell me what kind of product do you want to see from PataPri. every Sunday night I will randomly pick number out of number of comments left. Not so many readers here, so you have a big chance to win!
Shipping is on me.

Thank you!
Yuko

Oh man, Yuko, I can't believe it! I'm salivating a little just at the thought of ten misprinted towels. I think what I would like to see in your shop is more yardage for crafting purposes. Because the tea towels are fabulous, but I would feel a bit guilty cutting them up, and the same with the bedding you have. Also, just wanted to let you know I'm loving your blog and your designs are great and make me smile!(Not that I'm sucking up or anything..)

What a great idea! I think, based on your bedding and tea towels, I'd love to see either more yardage to turn into curtains (for an all-over pattern option) or pre-made curtains. (perhaps with an all-over pattern or running along the bottom or something) The patterns lend well to it, and in a kitchen or craft room, they'd be super cute! My other suggestion is a tablecloth or runner. Very cute!

mj said...

Yardage, or tablecloths and table runners could be great- love the idea for border- printed curtains (which would work on a tablecloth too!). I'd be more likely to buy yardage to make pillows than to buy ready-made pillows, but I'm sure there are others who would think the opposite.

Victoria E said...

It would be great to see yards of the fabric for bigger projects, as well as bigger sized sheet sets and patterns printed on sustainable fabrics.

Hi Yuko,

I love your tea towels and would love to see more matching kitchen linen (table cloth, placemats, napkins) and curtains (i.e. fabric) Your designs would also work well on fabric for purses, bags and patchwork..it's so happy and bright and will make any kitchen (and house) look like summer!

Sheridan said...

I would also love to see some yardage! I love your designs, but I just don't have any need for tea towels. I would make some gorgous mini-patchfolios with your fabric!

jenib320 said...

Your designs are amazing! As a sewer, I would love to see more yardage as well! Your prints would make fantastic bags or even sweet little aprons! :)

linda p said...

i love your style and i wouldn't change a thing about the prints! it would be kind of cool to see them on different colors (like white paint on an orange towel, etc) and yardage, as the people above have said. i actually think your designs would make super cute dishes (mugs and plates)- although i realize that's probably out of your desired area at the moment. :)

cheers

i just found your work and shop recently. i am all giddy at the possibility of yardage. ahhh! that's the only suggestion i have. i just want more! your designs and colors are out of one of my dreams. i am still learning (do we ever stop) but i usually make patchwork pillows, blankets and baby bibs. lately i have been making bags as well. your designs would be perfect for my projects!

Mich said...

I would love to see some fabric that could be used to make quilts or some patchwork! Thanks!

pinkchook said...

Hi like everyone else I would love to see some yardage, as then be able to make wider range of stuff. Love aprons your designs would make great aprons, pot holders etc. Love to see different coloured backgrounds too. I would love to use your designs for kids bags. Great work.

Courtney said...

Definitely more yardage! Perhaps more patterns in a single color? Your towels and designs are lovely and I enjoyed your Etsy interview when you were a featured seller.

kritty said...

I use mostly small pieces to make balls for kids (stuffed with wool and a cat toy for bell effect) and stuffed animals.... I need to post some of these on flickr. Your stuff it so juicy.

Sharon said...

I love your work. Yardage would be great but also ...twill tape.

Ellen said...

Hi Yuko! Love your textiles! I would make some placemats and napkins with your towels! Sooo cute. I love them!

karen said...

Hi Juko! Definitely more yardage. I really love the cuteness and colours of your prints -so unique!- and think they would look great on larger surfaces, though I know it could be tougher to screenprint by yourself all the yards.

siagrafica said...

Hi Yuko!

Same here... your cute designs would be perfect for table runners, napkins, yardage, curtains, twill tape... and pillow covers.

cheers from Amsterdam

betsy said...

Oh, wow! I love your designs and your use of color. I love the idea of yardage as there are several prints I'd like to use to make dresses and skirts for my girls and pillows too but I also think your designs would be great on paper -- letterhead, envelopes, wrapped around small boxes (which you could do with fabric as well). And oh my, I *love* the idea of seeing some of your designs on ceramic and glass -- teacups, vases, plates, glasses. *swoon* Your work is so lovely!

Amy said...

I've often dreamed of a shower curtain with your designs.

jubilant jess Ü said...

Hi! When I read this post, I immediately thought, "more yardage, please!" After reading through some comments, it seems like I'm not the only one interested in more yardage. There are so many different things I want to try with your beautiful prints! Thanks for the giveaway!

downstairs Designs said...

Oooh, I have been waiting for these ever since we chatted a few months ago! You know I would love to see yardage, esp. on some canvas or denim so that we can show off your beautiful prints everywhere! I would also buy these "seconds" anytime you wanted to list them too!

(BTW, I adore my latest towels- those mushrooms are wonderful!)

jen said...

what a great way to use your misprints! you could probably also come up with smaller products that would only use a few of each image.

yardage and larger duvets would be great!

Kim said...

Yardage, absolutely. It'd be just like making kitchen towels, but without the hems!

Hmmm ... what would I make with misprinted towels? Appliqued baby onesies, framed wall hangings, potholders, softies ... really I would probably just keep it forever uncut and stare at it!

mariko said...

Yuko-san,
I would LOVE to see T-shirts with your designs! I would be proud to wear them all over town. Also, napkins would be very fun.

SQUID37 said...

Wow!!! I love your designs so much! I bet these would make some beautiful bags! I also agree with the crowd that yardage would be lovely :)
(I keep adding things to the list and then deleting them thinking I've already listed too many. . . basically your fabric can make anything wonderful!)

robyn said...

Yardage would be fantastic, but I'd also love to see some small limited edition prints for framing, perhaps? Or stretched over different canvas sizes.

Keep up the great work - I am loving your new bedding!

umeboshi said...

I would love to see aprons as well. How about lounge wear, like pajamas/pajama pants to match the bedding sets you've been creating? Your patterns are so cute--I would also buy "girl short" type undies with your designs printed on them.

hine said...

Konnichiwa Yuko-san!
Yes! I would like to see .......
1) simple linen tote bags
2) little aprons (garcon type)
3) T shirts
4) pot holders
with your sweet designs!
Tanoshimi-ni-shitemasu-yo!

ingrid said...

Yardage would be fabulous! I would also love to see placemats and napkins. I think they would make beautiful little sets.

kwoozy said...

Hi Yuko,
ooh i love your stuff (plus the fact that you print it all yourself!).

I will agree with the rest - yardage is good.
And I guess I would be interested to see more collabs as well - I missed out on the Sour girls (so good that one).

All the best!

amelia anne said...

i would love your designs on baby onesies, or also on tablecloths! what a nice idea this giveaway is!

kpucu said...

(: I would love to have light shades with your fabrics. Also it would be great to make kitchen sets from every design with aprons, kitchen gloves, tablecloths, light shades, simple shopping bags and standard sized curtains. Other option is bedrooms sets with pyjamas, sleepers, bed sheets and pillows.

Definitely I would wear underwear with you designs ((:

thank you for making all PataPri fans happy with this opportunity (:

steven mcvay said...

every night i sit staring at my dogs ugly plastic bed that has an old blanket crumpled up in it and wonder why she hates going in it...and im sure she hates it because its just too darn dull for her, so with these fabrics i would make the best dog pillow any pampered pooch could want, and maybe i will start looking at it and think i want to get in it...
lots of love
steven and charlie the dog
