Kawaii Fabric is a craft supply shop that launched last year as a sister shop to Modes4u. In all honesty, it’s nothing short of a wonderland for kawaii crafters! They offer a wide array of sewing and crafting supplies, including lots of notions like buttons and patches, and a staggering variety of cute Japanese fabrics. They have an enormous section of Hello Kitty fabric to browse through, and even fabric bundles. Keep reading for a review of a few of their items!
I do not think any photo can do this mint green animal double gauze fabric justice. I was super excited about how cute it looked online, but as soon as it arrived I actually squealed a little! It’s a soft, lightweight, high quality, 100% cotton double gauze fabric. Since it is a gauze fabric, it is somewhat sheer and thin, so I would not suggest it for anything where heavier-duty fabric is called for. However, I do feel it is still rather versatile! You could use it for anything from something like a scarf to a kawaii pastel patch quilt! How cute would that be?
This light pink pinhead polka dot fabric is 100% cotton and a simple, extremely versatile fabric. This fabric is quite high quality as well, and could be used for virtually any craft project, including things like pencil pouches and plushies. Do keep in mind that storage could be a struggle since wrinkles are just in the nature of cotton fabric. I always try to use these types of fabrics as soon as possible.
Crafting bits and bobs as cute as these are like cherries on a sundae to me! Kawaii Fabrics offers many officially licensed Sanrio notions to choose from, such as buttons, patches, and iron-on transfers, which means high quality items with minimal flaws.
They even have lots of notions with lesser-known Sanrio characters including the stick-on Hummingmint deer patch and CherinaCherine mouse button I received. I don’t see those characters very often, so I was excited! The nice thing about notions is that they’re an inexpensive way to spruce projects up, and you don’t necessarily have to be a sewing expert or regular hobbyist to enjoy using them. They can be added very easily to things like clothing and accessories to make them cuter.
(As a bonus, they were also kind enough to throw in a cute little panda deco tape! While not strictly fabric related, I just thought it was too cute not to share.)
If you’re in the market for new sewing supplies, I would highly recommend checking out Kawaii Fabric. They have so much to offer, it is impossible not to find something to inspire your next sewing project. Look out for a special tutorial using these items on SCK later this month!
