Lace & Bloom – A little freebie

Good morning!!

It’s my birthday today and to celebrate it, I’m giving something to you. A new free pattern. This pattern happens to go with my Lace & Bloom Square, where I originally thought that there would be all different sorts of squares, resembling some sort of garden.

Fast forward to today and I’m releasing the second design, it has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here lol.

Say hello to the Royal D pattern, I actually designed it in colours that reminded me or Royal Doutlon’s blue and white hence the name. Now well, it’s colourful but the name still remains the same hehehe.
