giveaway time!

Hello! I have a question to pose for you all. It goes like this:

What new Pocket Carnival products would you like?

I've got lots of fun new ideas for products that I'm working on - first in the lineup of goodies is some homewares type things! But I'd love to know what you would all like to see adorned with little Pocket Carnival illustrations. Do you want more designs for our current products, or do you have a brand new product in mind? Or do you think everything is perfect just like it is?

If you're just new to Pocket Carnival, please take a peek through our shop here!

The giveaway:
Leave a comment on this blog post letting me what new products you would like to see Pocket Carnival making (or if you can't think of one, what's your favourite current product?)

Edited to add: I have heaps of ideas, but I want to know what you all really want!


Giveaway closes Tuesday 18th May at 9pm Melb time.
I will randomly select 3 winners who will each be able to choose a Pocket Carnival coinpurse or (unframed) art print of their choice (I will post anywhere in the world!) So don't leave your comment anonymously, okay?

I can't wait to read your comments! Thank you all, in advance!

I think some screen printed tea towels would be very cute. I'd love to have something like that in my kitchen.

Milkwood Design said...

Thursday stole my answer! I'm into tea towels at the moment too... gotta be good quality, pref. 100% linen : )

helena / little mo said...

wrapping paper would be pretty too! and yes tea towels, fabric cards.. little buntings etc xoxox

PinkLizzy for missIsa said...

Tea towels.
Mugs! OMG how cute would that be?

Lisa Kavenagh said...

I would love to see some funky lil boys items. I am thinking the designs that you have would look awesome in lil pj pants or shorts for around the house.

What about a note holder....like a fabric one that you can hang on the wall. with lil slots in there to put mail unopened , bills, notices for school etc....
:)

Your shop is adorable! You could definitely expand to makeup bags/cases! Or try a cute set of pillow cases - I can see something similar to the totes, simple so it's not too cutesy.

As much as I love the awesome sweetness of your shop, I'm also a Magic the Gathering card game geek player. One deck I would normally have would be about the size of a 4 deck of cards stacked together. Usually I use a rubber band to tie them together but something like your coin purse but enlarged would make for an absolutely awesome deck holder!

Ah, maybe I'm too geeky but I'm a girl too so that would be hotness. Cheers!

Camila said...

I'd love to see some wraps for knitting needles, pencils, paintbrushes etc. I can never find nice ones, I think your cloud fabric would be lovely.

tractorgirl said...

oh yeah, I love the teatowels idea, plus oven-mitts! uber-fab for baking cupcakes :)

Tea towels and aprons, too cute.

Deb - Two Cheeky Monkeys said...

Penny, you know I love your totes! I do like the tea towel idea mentioned by some of the others. And what about aprons for kids and adults made from Pocket Penny fabric or screen printed like your totes are?

Caitlin T. said...

tea towels are definitely cute. what about pot holders or aprons as well?

i love your coin purses, by the way. especially the raindrops with the red alphabet. so cute!

thanks!

bec said...

hankies! definately hankies! and tea towells, very cute! ;)

amy said...

can not go past a cute pair of place mats! i am totally in love with your paper planes print, so anything with that on it would be good! :)

Mira Narnie said...

oh there are so many possibilities with such gorgeous prints, but anything for the kitchen would be fab, so tea towls, aprons and pot holders. Although I think nursery/children's decor would also be great like lamp shades, pillows and library bags.

ok - i will stop now!
I hope i win...;-0

Chicken Ink. said...

My vote is for wrapping paper!

Petaliferous said...

Why not add some mobile phone socks to your range, i think your gorgeous prints would be very popular in that format!

my poppet said...

Little button hairclips or brooches maybe?

Melissa said...

i love the hand printed teatowel as well, i also love the pencil/coin purses as well as the designs you make. All in all, i love them all :)

Jo (sparkly green knickers) said...

There is so much you could do - if you had the time and inclination! Cushion covers, pillow slips, laundry bags, library bags (imagine your cute little characters reading books!), mini tooth fairy pillows (for those lost teeth), placemats, oven mitts, pot holders, napkins, need I go on??

Hope we've all given you some useful ideas :)

michvanetta said...

Ooooo I'd love to see softies made wearing little outfits out of your gorgeous fabrics.

Or prints with the characters wearing the fabric, 3D effect - cute, cute!

My name is Connie said...

I'd love to see paper hanging mobiles with your cute drawings!

Red Letter Studio said...

hmmm I was thinking more fabric designs - cushions? more tote bags but made fully with your fabrics? I especially love your clouds fabric it rocks. screenprinted onto hoodies and tees would be cool too, I know tees are everywhere but I love your little bunnies and frogs, would make wonderful tees!! fun giveaway!

jade holi said...

i love your fabric range and prints the most. To see something new -i like the idea of kids lamps shades & library bags or even re-usable lunch bags xo jade

Rie said...

I'd love to see your designs on things that I use everyday such as a sunglass case, 'carpet bag' handbag and some brown paper (for wrapping parcels) with the the print on them.

Jess said...

Little note pads, for sure - and matching pencils!! :D

Beky said...

Ooo love the idea of your clouds being on a mug and a t-shirt.

Posie Patchwork said...

Lamp shades are always a winner, even small plug in night lights for children, no one seems to do them!! Love Posie

Baci e Abbracci said...

How about a baby change cover mat....?

michelle said...

i would like drawstring bags for tidying away toys. beachbags, library bags. oven mitts, teatowels, placemats of course. how about a range of kids crockery and cutlery? or yeah, mugs for me. egg cups. kids bedlinen. softies. ribbon, you know, where you print on to twill tape i think? ummmm. okay that's all for now! love your work! oh oh, small round ceramic pendants with your chacters/prints on them!

Baci e Abbracci said...

...or a tissue box cover...

maddo said...

I like those little rectangular shoulder bags and think your prints would look fantastic on them !

IndigoElephant :: Sash said...

Love the idea of 100% linen tea towels, some lovely cushions or kids bedding and yes i totally get Michelle's idea of printed tape... I recently got some from here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/lillalotta
and think your illustrations would be fab on tape :)

Amaranta said...

Humm you should do somethings for the kitchen, like towels or aprons, I think a lot of moms and girls, feel kind of weird spending money on things for themselves but!!! if you give them cute things that the DO need well, they will be able to buy guilt free.
Thanks!

B @ Sweet Limes said...

Naomi said...

I love your birdies and your jungle animals and would love to see tea towels and wrapping paper.... ooh like jade holi said what about lampshades? with the jungle animals would be divine!

Clarissa said...

Hmmm...well I would love if you had a series of marine animals like you have the insects, african creatures etc! Or beach snail things ..like limpet :) Wrapping paper would also be cool. T - shirts would also be cool.

m.e (Cathie) said...

i'm liking the sound of a cloud apron!!
great giveaway Penny!

Just B. said...

Hmmm. stationary? As in writing paper with your lovely little prints on it, so when I send letters they can look pretty too. I love everyone elses ideas that they have written down as well!

Cotton Kiwi said...

I do love all your illustrations and one day when I have defeated my stash a bit more I shall buy some! My suggestion would be iron on patches (for people to pop on kids t-shirts or holes in jeans etc) and postcards. How about softie keyrings too? I think they would be very popular.

Morphologica said...

pocketcarnival mugs would be awesome!!

Bec said...

i think cushion covers would be fantastic, especially in the cloud fabric. i am a sucker for stationery so sticky notes featuring your gorgeous prints would be awesome. i am struggling to find crafty oven mitts so if i can join the chorus of kitchen ware suggestions, I would love oven mitts, a trivet, tea towels and placemats...good luck with your new designs!

lauren carney said...

oh oh oh i want to play!
you know im trying to think of what you could create,
and i think you've totally sewn up a storm and drawn so many pretty creations its hard to think of what next.
i'm totally in love with stationary, so maybe a pretty calendar or pretty book (like the pretty paper goods in at kiki k?)

sorry thats pretty broad, but defs some pretty note pads or a diary and a calendar.

ps. i love your stuff. and thankyou for your email the other day, you are too gracious!

Jo's Place said...

Anything to be perfectly honest, everything you make, I want LOL

NeverEverEmma said...

Hi Penny! I would really love a teatowel with the cloud print... or a fabric belt! Oooh the possibilities... maybe you should just sell your fabric designs!

Freckled Sparrow said...

I love your stuff as it is but if you're thinking about expanding I would love some t-shirts and dainty cups and saucers :D Can't wait to see the new range!

ambette said...

My favourite suggestion so far is mugs. If you do mugs, I'll buy one from you straight away!

I also really like the wrapping paper and notepad suggestions.

The only things I can add as suggestions are sticker sets, and a calendar (have they been suggested yet?)

karen lee said...

Can't think of anything that hasn't already been mentioned. We obviously love your designs and would like to see them on EVERYTHING!
Personal favourite would be kitchen items of tea towels, oven mits, mugs and placemats in a set of 6 different ones as your characters are all so adorable!

shimmer and glow said...

Finger puppets!

bumblerred said...
