I’m a fan of color blocking and this idea screamed Kate Spade or Marc Jacobs to me.
I know for some of you this is hardly needs a pattern, but I also know that there are plenty of readers who might not know where to get started. So for you, dear reader, I wrote it up real nice & purrrty for ya to download.
