Other Block-Printed Items for the Home

Just as I do for the kitchen, I'll buy a length of interesting fabric for placemats, small tablecloths and table runners, I'll also make window curtains, shower curtains, pillows and small area rugs.

Right now, though, I've only got two leopard-printed pillows that have seen better days, though the cats find it inspirational to sleep on them.

Below I have the patterns I've used for printing. They include feline-themed "Tortie Cats", "Awakening", and also wildlife themes in "Yes?", the leopard turning around to look at you, and the "Whale Tail" series.

The Goddess

Cookie is the kitchen goddess and looks great on placemats and aprons, or to trim a table cloth or curtain. I've also been experimenting with heavy canvas floor cloths.

The Roundest Eyes

Kelly always looks a little uncertain about what's going on, but she looks lovely on the edge of a placemat or on a curtain or tablecloth.


I usually print these two in the center of a round table cloth.

Puget Sound

Block Print; 7" x 5"

The whales swim on the edge of a curtain or on a placemat, often sharing space with the whale flukes, below.

Whale Tail I

Block Print; 2" x 4"

These also fit well on a napkin.

Whale Tail II

Block Print; 2" x 4"

They share space on a placemat, too.


Block Print; 10" x 8"

One of my favorite sets is placemats and a tablecloth imprinted with her likeness, and she's also pretty imposing on an apron. She also looks great on a set of sheer curtains.


Block Print; 14" x 10"

The eagle works well on placemats, tablecloth and apron as well as pillows.
