New fabrics!

I’ve spend time this Winter working on new fabrics for Spoonflower and I thought I would share my designs and inspiration.

nail polish fabric by Rae Kaiser

I am always intrigued by the bottle shapes as well as all the colors in nail polish. This could be fun in a tween bedroom, pillows maybe? Or wallpaper one wall? Maybe gift wrap her birthday gifts in the wrapping paper? Pastel colored nail polish fabric on Spoonflower

Eat your Fruits and Veggies

This print makes me think of a farm house kitchen with this pattern used in light weight cotton for curtains. Windows open, curtains blowing in a breeze. To be used with the Eat your Fruits and Veggies 4-up dish towels. Eat your Fruits and Veggies on Spoonflower

dishtowels from Spoonflower and Roostery

These four dishtowels on Spoonflower are printed on one yard of 54” wide cotton, linen, canvas fabric. You cut apart and hem. These make great gifts, everyone can use a new dishtowel, or two or four. Eat your Fruits and Veggies Dish Towels Spoonflower.

In addition, Roostery who is Spoonflower’s sister site sometimes has items in finished form. These dishtowels can be ordered already hemmed. Note that you get 2 dishtowels finished from Roostery, rather than 4 unfinished from Spoonflower. Eat your Fruits and Veggies Dish Towels on Roostery.

Baby bear fabic on Spoonflower

I see this baby bear design in a knit for a little onesie. Or wallpaper in the nursery. Or bibs. Nice little unisex pattern. Playful Baby Bear on Spoonflower

wilderness animal print on Spoonflower by Rae Kaiser of outside_the_line

My newest and favorite fabric so far. I wanted to do something in this type of interlocking pattern. I started by using images from many of my fonts. Then I drew some images as needed to fill in. Love the colors of charcoal and khaki. Same pattern in 2 colorways for versatility. Wilderness Animal Pattern Khaki on Charcoal. and Wilderness Animal Pattern Charcoal on Khaki


Last, but not least, is a new set of dish towels. I really, really like these. Just cut the 4 towels apart and hem.

Make matching table cloths, napkins, place mats, curtains, etc. from the yardage above. The yardage and dishtowels pattern vary a little.

Or do a wall of wallpaper.

There is also matching wrapping paper too in the 2 color ways .

Fun as a hostess gift when visiting the cabin or lake house.

If you are interested you can see my complete fabric collection here. Thanks! Rae

Wilderness Fabric Collection is done!


Finally. I am excited to be able to show you this collection in its entirety! I've worked on this off and on for over a year. So it is good to have pulled it all together and finished it. You can see it all on Spoonflower

Spoonflower is a print on demand site. You choose your design, you choose your yardage, you choose the fabric you want to printed it on and order.

This collection was inspired by an amazing trip to Alaska several years ago. I also created a font Wilderness Doodles. Most of these illustrations come from that font.

These prints are offered as fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper. The uses and combinations are endless. Any, or all of the prints would make a great quilt for your outdoorsman or woman. Wallpaper a wall in the man cave and add some throw pillows. Or a friend is using one pattern in this cabin in the bush... curtains, tablecloth, napkins. Options are endless. Pick just one pattern or use all one color or use them all together. They were designed to mix and match.

Coming soon will be dish towels. Four dish towels on one yard of fabric.





So glad that 2016 is over for all the obvious reasons. To get back on track for the new year I am focusing on all things creative.

Spoonflower recipe tea towels

The new year will start with creating several fabric collections that will be for sale on Spoonflower. The top 2 were gifts and will be the jumping off point for a red, black, khaki collection with some buffalo check tossed in. I will also offer these as tea towels. Each collection will have a color selection in mind as well as a black and white of the same. I don't expect the black and white collection to sell well, but I like black and white. I will be thinking about you quilters out there with this first collection.

The bottom tea towel is a recipe in my mother's handwriting. I love it. Spoonflower has a tutorial if you want to make some. These made delightful gifts for my sisters, niece and sister-in-law. I hope they will actually use them.

This is not my font or my product. I did get them as a gift and LOVE them. This is going to be my go to birthday girlfriend gift for 2017. And quite reasonably priced for bespoke stationery. Very fresh and creative and a little messy.


This Christmas and birthday season I got 2 great books both illustrating information. Before I had even written my thank you notes a friend who is a writer, artist and yoga instructor asked if I would like to exchange postcards with her weekly. I am quite excited about this. I doubt ours will be like those in this book. I know mine will be less about data and more about illustrating a thought or question or idea. If all goes well they might be shared here.

And I wish you all a hopeful New Year. Do something creative!

NOLA fabric


Mardi Gras or New Orleans fabric made using icons from my New Orleans Doodles font. Since I am not a fan of the Mardi Gras purple, green and yellow palette I used black and white. This print is offered as fabric or wallpaper. I can see this fabric made into napkins or a tablecloth for a Mardi Gras party or a hip New Orleans wedding. How fun would it be to use this as wallpaper on one wall in a small room. You can see it here.

cards and fabric and wallpaper, oh my


new birthday cards, new fabric and the same pattern in wallpaper. Yes I am old school and like to send and receive birthday cards. (I think I got 17 for my recent birthday!) I like any form of real mail where someone actually writes in their own handwriting. Three years ago I made my own cards and had a year's worth printed and have been doing it each year since. I guess am my mother's daughter. She always had boxes of cards. They had a range of holidays, birthday, sympathy, congratulations... I also like having cards in the house especially Sympathy and Birthday. This year I made 2 cards using icons from several of my fonts, most of which came from Birthday Doodles. And they are printed and in my etsy store. I also have used the print in my spoonflower shop and it is available in fabric or wallpaper. If you live in Madison the cards are available at Hatch Art House.
