New Pattern: Liquorice Allsorts (up to 40% off!)

This week’s Sunday pattern features those Liquorice Allsorts I’ve been working on and is now available in my on-demand stores.

These were an early favourite back on day 21 and have since been redrawn as vectors and finally arranged into a repeat pattern. This wasn’t a fun pattern to create – I would like words with whoever picked the colours for allsorts as there are 3 pink sweets, 2 of which are round. I tried a grid pattern first but always ended up with too many pink things together. A scattered pattern works better, but I also had to go with a blue background, when I really wanted candy pink stripes like the paper bags. I still love it though.

They’re now available in my Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle stores on tons of fun products for anyone who loves rainy days.

It’s Memorial Day in the US tomorrow so there’s some great discounts. Society6 has 20-40% off everything for the next few days, so well worth picking up something more pricey you’ve had your eye on. I love the duffle bag – perfect for weekends away.
