Musubi Cat Plush Kickstarter

Posted on May 3, 2018 by

We don’t often share Kickstarters but this Musubi Cat plush is too cute not to share!

Musubi Cat plush

Pocket Sushi are more well-known for their cute amigurumi, which often combine food and animals. For their first plush, they’ve chosen Musubi Cat who is inspired by the popular spam and rice snack from Hawaii. It looks so cute and squishy.

Musubi Cat plush enamel pins

As well as the plush, there are other fun rewards including these enamel pins, also based on Hawaiian snacks. Ice Bunny would fit perfectly into my collection.

Musubi Cat plush papercraft

One thing I really like is that all pledges receive a DIY paper craft model. So even if you can’t afford a plush or pin right now, you can pledge $2 and get something cute – and help make the plushies a reality for when you do have cash.

You can check out Musubi Cat over at Kickstarter – there’s only a couple of weeks left to support it.

Things To Make

Kawaii Printable Clipart for Journal Stickers

Posted on May 1, 2018 by

I really enjoy filling my journal with kawaii images and even got a printer for that purpose. That’s why I’ve been searching the entire internet for kawaii printable clipart. You can easily turn clipart into stickers by printing them on regular or sticker paper.

I think that the clipart from Cockatoo Design is the perfect combination of simple and cute. High on my wishlist is the kawaii unicorn and narwhal clipart which comes in a set of 15 images.

Care Bears x Pusheen Collection

Posted on April 30, 2018 by

Hey Chickadee and JapanLA just launched a Care Bears x Pusheen clothing collection that mixes my childhood favorite Care Bears with my new favorite cartoon kitty Pusheen.

Care Bears x Pusheen clothing

This collection is what pastel dreams are made of! It’s also available in sizes from XS to 4XL – making it an inclusive line for a lot of kawaii fans.

Care Bears x Pusheen tee

My favorite item is this strappy shirt. I like that it comes in black and the strappy detail turns an otherwise plain tee into a fashion statement.

Care Bears x Pusheen skirt

This pastel pink skirt with playful cartoon details is screaming WEAR ME TO A PICNIC!

Care Bears x Pusheen dress

Rainbows and love are printed all over this little black dress. This is a great lil Sunday brunch dress if you are going out with your cutest pals!

Care Bears x Pusheen top

Show some skin this summer in this playful halter top.

Care Bears x Pusheen raglan tee

I would wear this sporty-inspired raglan tee for pajamas but feel guilty that not everyone would be able to bask in its cuteness.

Care Bears x Pusheen collection

You can shop the Care Bears x Pusheen Collection in person at JapanLA in Los Angeles and they’ll add stock stock online later today, along with some rare Care Bears merch. You can also buy online from Hey Chickadee with shipping available worldwide. The collection is limited so don’t wait too long!
