Pattern Week Day 1/ Stripes
Alright, now that I've made my lame excuses, let's move onto more important things: Stripes. Who doesn't like a stripe? They're versatile and graphic. They go with everything. Stripes take you to all sorts of places: a ticking stripe makes me think of the French countryside whereas a bold black and white stripe has a mod feel. Where do these photos take you?
This photo by Matthias Heiderich makes me think of a giant lolipop
