Kawaii Heart Hugs

I’ve got a new Heart Hugs illustration and pattern in my print-on-demand stores that’s sure to make everything a little better.

This hugging heart was a paper cut I designed for handmade cards and it deserved to be available more widely. I kept the same sweet pastel colours and turned it into a simple pattern too.

Both the pattern and the illustration are available at Redbubble, Society6 (scroll way down to see all products), TeePublic & Zazzle on all the usual fun products – apparel, stationery, art, phone cases, bags, homeware, kitchenware, bedding and lots more. They’re especially sweet on gifting and personal care products. I’ve also received fabric swatches for Heart Hugs, Snail Mail & Spring Bunnies so they’re all available on Spoonflower now.
