Feature // Kawaii Plush + Dolls

Some of the cutest kawaii items I think, hands down, are dolls and plush! Everything from commercial items (like Sanrio) to handmade one of a kind creation really show how versatile kawaii can be, and how different artists put their own interpretations on them. One of my favorites right now - that I totally stumbled upon by accident! It was a present from my aunt in the UK (。◕‿‿◕。) - are the Momiji wood dolls! They are "...inspired by friendship and little kindnesses. It's about filling life with memories and messages." Aww, how cute! Here's a picture of mine below called Favorite Person:

For unique handmade one of a kind kawaii plush dolls, here are two great sellers on Etsy that I adore! (Click the picture for the link to their shops.)

Weird & unique cat plush ~ zeropumpkin

P.S. Here are a few of my felt creations on Deviant Art and Cut Out and Keep. That's all for now! xoxo

Berry Biz Tip - I Heart Craft Shows

I'm so excited for the TSMS Craft Show I'm doing Saturday November 20, 2010 (10am - 4pm)! It's my first one, and so far I've got my items packaged and ready. Still have some sewing plushie projects to work on (they'll be up on Etsy too!). I have a bunch of things left to do like make a banner, display cases, get a drop cloth, inventory list, etc. not including studying for exams and writing papers haha ~ I think I should have started preparing 2 months ago. To all of those also doing craft shows, newbies and vets, I found some great tips here on Etsy. How was your first craft show? Feel free to share your stories below! That's all for now! xoxo

My new business cards!

Fabric Covered Buttons

I love Japanese fabrics! They are so cute and come in an array of colors, textures, and prints. I've started making fabric covered buttons with them, and turning them into cute accessories like rings and hair pins. Some pictures of rings I've been working on. The floral one is not Japanese fabric, but still cute! I have a scrap pack of fabrics for sale in my Etsy shop.
Two awesome shops that sell Japanese fabrics:
Fat Connection

Emi Craft in Japan

Here is a great tutorial to get you started if you don't know how to cover buttons with fabric (plus they give you some great project ideas!). Fabric Covered Buttons Tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets
That's all for now; Happy Thanksgiving and see you all soon! xoxo
