A sweet tropical illustrated pineapple, designed for the 2013 tea towel calendar contest. The illustration style is inspired by Eric Carle's children's books. As a bonus, the calendar includes January 2014.
The different textured areas were created by painting with acrylic on paper. The paintings were scanned, and then placed into shapes in illustrator.

Fantastic illustration style! Love the methods you've used, so authentic.
Hello Martha, thanks for your questions. That is correct. If you order a fat quarter you will see the entire pineapple image. Some of the fabrics have larger dimensions for a fat quarter - if you select a different type of fabric the display will update to show you what you will receive.
If you would like to make a tea towel out of linen cotton canvas, (or heavy cotton twill) I have a modified design that is slightly taller, to better use that larger space: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1529781
I just received some of these printed on linen cotton canvas and they printed beautifully. A lot of people on this site say they like the linen cotton canvas for the tea towels as it is a bit more durable than the basic cotton or combed cotton. The poplin, voile, silk, sateen, and knit are probably not good options for a tea towel.
Hello! I just happen to stumble upon your site and already adore it! However, I am new to sewing, fabric, etc., and would like to ensure what I am assuming is correct. If I order a fat quarter, will this be one whole image (of the pineapple) correct? Per the measurements, I assume that this is the case. Also, I see that you have many different fabric options...I would love to make this into a tea-towel, which is the best option? Thanks so much for your time. Looking to many sewing adventures via your site :) Sincerely, Martha

Beautiful! And a great idea too!
Thanks for the lovely comment Su!
Great fun! Lovely bold colors and textures, and a nice idea to give an extra month too. I liked reading your notes as well.
Thank you Julie and Grace-Kelly for such positive comments.
I love the Eric Carle look to your pineapple, and especially the shapes you have used with the text inside them. It is nice to see a bold coloured design as well. Nice work!
Hey this is very cool i love the idea, AWESOME work!!!
Thank you Katy and Isabella!
This is gorgeous! x
Very eye-catching and great fun. Well done!
Thanks Rhonda! I thought we could use some "warm and tropical" in the northern hemisphere for the coming winter.
The tangy colours give your design a warm tropical atmosphere that is very appealing!
Thank you Penny and Miriam! I am looking forward to making these into tea towels for Christmas gifts.
Great illustration and textures. I would love this. So summery ^^
Awesome, Aldea! Bold and super-colorful, and I love the illustration style!
Thank you Kelly!
Awesome design on this one!!!
Thanks Anna! I love them too. I live on the West Coast of Canada and when I eat them I feel like I'm somewhere warm.
wonderful! I love pineapples and this illustration.
Here is what the design looks like in vertical orientation. This is the way I usually hang my tea towels.
