Tea & Battenberg Cake at Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle

You may have noticed a couple of new patterns in my socks posts featuring cups of tea and Battenberg cake! I’ve been adding both to my Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle stores so you can buy them on lots of fun products, including prints, stationery, clothing, phone cases, homeware, mugs, bags and lots more.

Time For Tea

What’s your favourite tea? This pattern features cups of tea in a mix of colours and flavours that could stand in for breakfast tea, green tea, earl grey or even coffee. I tried to pick more muted colours for this and managed not to use any blue (my constant default).

Battenberg Cake & Cup of Tea

This was one of the most popular characters in my 100 Day Project and a best seller as a pin too. The colours make for a very sugary-sweet pattern of slices of Battenberg cake and cups of tea in yellow and pink.
