New Pattern: Kawaii Lemons & Limes (25% off today)

My 100 Day Project has reignited my passion for creating repeat patterns and I plan to post a new one every Sunday. It turns out that also aligns nicely with my on-demand stores as they often have discounts on a Sunday. So, I’ll share my new designs here on the blog too so you don’t miss out.

This week’s pattern features some happy lemons and limes. This was one of my pattern ideas for the monthly wallpapers I created in 2016 so it was satisfying to finally make it. It’s weird that I had never drawn a lime before as I always have one in the kitchen.

It’s now available in my Society6 & Redbubble stores on tons of fun products including homeware, stationery, bags, gadget cases, art prints and more. The fresh colour scheme is perfect for summertime and the kitchen.
