It's Toile About You

Toile de Jouy, aka "toile" (Twahl), is a style of fabric consisting of fairly complex scenes drawn in black, red, or blue, usually on off-white backgrounds.



From a distance it looks like a cute vintage toile pattern.

But up close it is far more quaint than that!



To be belt printed a darkish blue on a cream shirt.

I think it's great! Reminds me of a naked&angry shirt I have done by Ray Fenwick. I hate it when threadless becomes whiney and elitist if someone new gets a high score and uses their fanbase to an advantage. It's embarrassing.

Congrats on the print!
This is hilarious. I used to have a job scanning fabrics like this for a company's web images. If I could, I would buy one for everyone at the old job.

i knew it! you are part of the Cicierega family, associated with the "Potter Puppet Pals"... thats fun. thats the "other websites" peeple.

Yay Emmy! Can't wait to see what else you bring us.

hahahhaa wow the drama. I'm just happy to see that someone who's outside of the normal circle of printed artists can jump in and get printed too.

By the way, I totally did a double take when I saw this name...

Neil Cicierega, her brother and creator of potter puppet pals?

That's funny, we have an internet celebrity sibling printed on Threadless haha

This makes me SO happy. Would you consider selling this design as a fabric on Spoonflower? I would buy it, instantly.

patiokiss

Sick shirt. 5. Where did you get the shirts done at? I'm looking for a company to press my designs. I want it pressed over the entire shirt.

Ulumuri

Reminds me a lot of Kate Beaton's "Hark! A Vagrant" comics. Anyway, cute & funny.

Skap 1er

HAHA! it's just funny to me that people here had a problem with you getting friends to vote for your design. You got printed. It's already been re-printed. You've won a BESTEE award, AAAAAND it was chosen as one of the Havaiana prints!!! Amazing. Eat that haters!!! Oh and ISABOA, toile is always tiled...duh

Braniel

It was an adventure reading all these comments and it's so freakin awesome that you got bestee awards and stuff, how cool is that!

BZ1806

Ugh. There were so many better designs.

wow more success in 3 subs than I've had in over a year! I just can't imagine what your reaction to getting all this money and attention so fast was. I love this and hounds tooth. I own both.
