Lyon’s by featured designers and testers

2015-07-08_0002

The best part of the pattern making project is hands down seeing the fun things people make out of the pattern and how they “hack” it. Both Trine from Groovy Baby Mama and Anneliese from Aesthtic Nest shared their versions of the Lyon Pattern on their blogs this week and I LOVE how they turned […]
