Kawaii Pastel Candy Hearts On-Demand

I made a ditsy hearts pattern back in 2012 that was only ever on Spoonflower. I think we maybe used it in The Super Cute Book of Kawaii too. I was updating it for Claire’s aida shop (see below) and decided to add some happy faces. Now it’s available in my print-on-demand stores too.

This is slightly too late for Valentine’s Day orders but I feel like the spirit of 2020/21 is just doing things anyway because we’re all a bit out of sync. This is quite a simple design but I like how low-key cute it is for clothing, furnishings and stationery. I initially only recreated the white version but I might love it more on black for a pastel goth style.

I also made versions without the faces and with outlines only. Spoonflower fabric swatches are on the way and I’m excited to see how they look.
