Here’s a few of my cutest finds from the SCK submissions folder.
If you love animals and enamel pins, you need to check out Pin Affinity. They work with independent artists including Natelle Draws Stuff, mochichito and Luxcups to create exclusive pins.
Kio Cards have a super cute collection of cards for every occasion – plus prints too. You’ll find lots of popular trends including unicorns, cats and inspirational quotes. Some cards can be personalised and others are completely handmade.
Love colouring? Lady Lucas has a new colouring book for vegans (or anyone who loves veggies). It’s got a cute bunny on the front and 20 pages of colouring fun inside! You even get bonus pages with activities and wall art. It’s a digital PDF so you can print it on your favourite paper or try colouring the same page with different materials. Get 15% off the whole range of colouring books and more with the code SUPERCUTE (expires 20th May)
A Taneko is an adorable mix of cat and octopus, which makes it an octo-puss! These handmade plushies come in all kinds of cute ‘flavours’ from pastel fruits to cakes plus colour schemes inspired by unicorns, Pokemon and Sailor Moon. You’ll also find some cat loafs, pastry penguins and plush desserts.
If you love looking at tiny tiny things, may I introduce you to these handmade miniatures by the Littlest Sweet Shop? Dollhouse miniatures are often quite traditional but these are very colourful and kawaii with sweets, cakes and snack food. I love this recreation of the 7 flavour ice creams at Nakano Broadway in Tokyo!
Updated 2022: Some of these shops are now closed – have a look at Our Favourite Kawaii Artists, Designers & Makers instead.
