This just makes me smile. I love the pun and cheekiness of this design.
Thanks Glimmericks and Tallulahdahling! Haha, I would love to see such a wardrobe! I still have to make myself some sleep shorts or something with it :).

I love this silliness! Somehow I've missed seeing this, even though it's been around here longer than I have. If I could afford it, I'd have a whole wardrobe of clothing made from funny fabric like this design!
Thank you all! I have printed this one out a couple times now and had to tweak colors, hopefully I have it right this time. Sorry I didn't thank you for those comments from a month ago, I was sure I had!

I love this! it made me giggle, and then Laugh. I love how into this you all have gotten, I wish I could've known about it earlier so I could've voted for this. =D
I would say that it didn't make top ten because we can't have Decobot win EVERY single contest!! hahahaa. Had to restrict ourselves at some point!!
dang! I'm chalking that up to the fact that there were two corset designs in the mix... betting that suddenly it seemed unoriginal to a lot of voters - even though the designs were so different from each other. rats!
Good grief - it just occurred to me that this didn't make the top ten! This contest was MADE for this design! Sheesh.
I'm chuckling at "deep and meaningful curtains" also; and wondering exactly what a design like that would look like.
and yeah - I laughed too about the deep and meaningful curtains! As has been said already somewhere else, it's hard to make symbolic surrealist images AND make a good fabric design. I didn't even try. The amazing thing to me is that you and several others succeeded amazingly well at both!
meh - I'm not convinced that surrealist art has to be gruesome or death-related. Magritte's typically wasn't. Dali also painted strange and lovely images like red roses floating in the sky. <p> I think the surrealist image this fabric most reminds me of (in symbolism) is Man Ray's <a href="http://www.manray-photo.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=541&osCsid=c6955344433cfc0498423f663eb3b446">Violon D'Ingres</a>. <p> but just having fun is good too - I hope we aren't ruining your fun, Decobot!
'Deep and meaningful curtains'. Bwhahaha, that made my evening.
Would you wear moldy fruit sludge PJs or have impaled and homeless looking fruit on your pillows? It would be fascinating art, but this is a fabric before it is art. I am not aspiring to design deep and meaningful curtains. I am just trying to have fun :).
Oh, well, this is really fun, must admit! But to me (not to anyone else...) this would have to take on a more incongruent aspect of theory... the bows would have to be less pretty, maybe with a melting look? The fruit would have to have some dead spots, the corsets closed with nails... But only in my mind - it's twisted enough! These drawings are well crafted, beautiful and they get you giggling.... I cant think of one (drugged/diseased induced) surrealist image that would be this.... pretty. I might be wrong!
Thank you Jumping Monkeys! I see a future for us at Fruit of the Loom :).
LOL I have the other corset fruit! Great minds think alike! I totally think this is surreal. Great work!
Thanks Ms_Corona, I am glad you find it fun! Thank you for that long thought out comment Weaving, I appreciate your interpretation.
really ms_corona? you thought these weren't surreal? I guess I'm surprised - to me it contains a lot of the traditional Freudian surrealist themes but in a new way. Like Dali, like Man Ray, like Magritte - if viewed as surrealist art, these fruits make you re-think femininity: the curves of fruit symbolizing the curves of a woman's body, the idea of a woman as an object or a commodity as symbolized by fruit - something you can have for the taking. Subconscious ideas deliberately brought into the open - I can make just as good a case for this being surrealism as any MirÃ³ or Jean Arp.
Surreal? No. Fun YESSSS! Great artwork! I was surprised to see two entries with these hateful restriction devises!
Thank you Onelittlefrog, Annosch, and Francine :). You know, I've actually never had a fruit tart. They look too pretty to eat.
This is awesome! I always knew fruit tarts were forbidden, but I thought it was for the calories. Very fun ;)
Oh, I like this too. I'm more like the apple with the color of a pear. Great design.
good luck with your design although going by the comment list your not going to need it. well done i love it.
Thanks a lot Babysisterrae, Lulakiti, and Scrummy! So many great designs for this contest, I will probably vote for more this round than ever before.
oh so lovely! xxx
Clearly this contest is made for you and this design! :) I hope you win!
it really is funny and beautiful, which is such a tricky balance. i love it!
Thank you Weavingmajor, Kdl, and Ttoz! I am still amazed that a perfect contest category came up for this quirky design!
Great, now the "CanCan" is going through my head...
Love it -- great background detail and probably the classiest design that has "tart" in it's title:)
Victoria's secret fruit, this is really great (love your details). Love your background, too. Very nicely done.
nice of Spoonflower to build a contest around your lovely and hilarious fabric! now the rest of us have to see if ANY of us can come up with something to compete! so great.

The swatch of this should come in soon so I can check out the colors. Thank you yoshikawa, spellstone, and sammy :).
Bwhahaha. Nice one, spellstone. It's an awesome print!
Fab! you totally have the Surrealist Fruit stitched up (or sinched in) Ax
Funniest thing I've seen all day. Definitely print this.
Thanks Inscribed, Weaving, and Cean! I had a lot of fun creating it.
Awesome! I love these sweet ladies and their saucy ways! I, too use a corset to keep my "pear" looking perky! Great job!
bwa ha ha! excellent. not only hilarious, but well done too - right down to the bows and the lovely background. I, too, will think of this every time I hear 'fruit tart'...
You're hilarious, I love it.
Thanks Everyone! I am glad it amuses you :). I am not sure what to make with it yet, maybe little potpourri sachets or simple pouches to put girly gifts in. My sewing skills are limited.
I have to agree with pinksodapop, I'll never hear the words "fruit tart" again without thinking of your fabric. Very cute and funny. So what are you going to make with it?

Yes! We have no bananas. We have no bananas today!
HAHAHAHAHA. So glad there's no banana there.
Oh my! Seriously a riot!
this is soooo funny... i like the way your mind thinks!
Thank you :)
hahaha oh that is just so brilliant, fantastically surreal and hilarious, love it!!
Those naughty fruits.... :]
