It would be really nice to have the picture next to the name so that you don’t have to keep clicking back and forth and easier to choose quickly. Just a suggestion that I think a lot of people would really enjoy and make your site so much more customer friendly. That is the very reason I don’t use some sites. It doesn’t make sense to make people click back and forth when it is so enjoyable to just scroll through. Then if you have to choose between patterns, it is right there and you don’t have to try to remember the name of what you looked at. Thank you. I love crafts!!!!

Hi there! It looks like the designer has removed this pattern from our site. We’ve swapped in a different pattern in the post!
