Spoonflower "Retro Kitchen"

I have entered the latest Spoonflower competition which held the theme of Retro Kitchen. I own an Italian recipe book dated 1960 which apart from being full of lovely dishes to cook, it also contains some lovely illustrations. I have used the illustration style to create 8 of my own illustrations which in turn create my fabric design. The repeat is very simple but I think it reflects a late "fifties" style, very sparse and a bit faded. The background has a texture designed to create a linen feel to the finished printed fabric. See the seamless repeat, which by the way is called a half-brick repeat... (see I am learning something), HERE on Flickr.
