If I hadn't told you - could you have guessed that I love linen?
I know as a textile designer, I probably shouldn't be Oohing and Arring over plain (unadorned) table linen quite as much as I have been lately - but these pure linen tablecloths & napkins are so Oooo & Arrr worthy just as they are. So ...... together with our collection of original hand printed table linens (...coming soon) I'm adding these perfectly plain, 100% linen, oat coloured beauties to the Kristopher K Shop : What could be more fun than mixing and matching prints & plains :) Speaking of mixing and matching fabrics ... I've just seen an amazing tutorial on the Knitty Gritty Thoughts Blog for fabric ornaments. I'm thinking they would make fabulous "no sew" decorations for the upcoming Holiday Season ... but be careful - this tutorial has been blogged with a warning ... It's hard to make just one!
This month, I've really been enjoying pretty pink, green and neutral colour palettes.
So to bring some of these wonderful Springtime tones inside, I decided to make myself some new cushions, featuring designs from the Vintage Shabby RoseCollection.
Today the rain is pouring outside my window, but I'm enjoying listening to the steady sound it makes as it hits the roof :)
.................. Also this week Judi Hall from Gingezel, featured our designs on the Gingezel website ~ Thank-you so much Judi for the wonderful Kristopher K feature :)
I first became aware of Gingezel Fabrics on Flickr, when I saw this lovely Collection of fabrics called Ocean Villa
... (I just love the muted blue and brown colour palette)

I hope your week so far has been fabulous ... Time for me now to make a nice hot cup of coffee, while outside the rain continues to fall :)
Today has been a Terrific Tuesday ... why ? Well apart from being the first Tuesday in November and a day when a little old horse race called The Melbourne Cupstops a nation ... I also made some fun "easy as" fabric buttons :)
Using a simple button kit that I purchased from The Haby Goddess (here) it really was as "easy as" 1, 2, 3 to make these adorable fabric covered buttons (with absolutely no sewing skills required ;)
Hello, my name is Kris,

I am a textile designer with an absolute obsession for beautiful prints on natural organic fabrics.
I adore an eclectic mix of French Provincial and Modern Interiors, and love to design and decorate with tertiary color palettes inspired by nature.

Thanks so much for your interest and support.
