Cute Characters, Let's Go Shopping!

Cute Pass Cases

Posted on March 21, 2017 by

Keeping my public transport card inside my wallet has become a bit of a hassle. I’d rather have my card at hand to quickly touch it on an electronic reader. Luckily there’s a nice collection of cute card holders available.

The Pusheen ID case comes shaped as a medium sized plush. Simply place your card in the back window pocket, hang it from your bag and stretch out the retractable cord to swipe.

The Pokemon Center often releases pass cases, such as this sweet Togedemaru case. It has got a retractable cord and you even store spare change inside the zip case section.

This official Molang card case doesn’t take up a lot of space. Use the strap to hang it from your neck, belt or bag. Or detach the strap to keep the case at hand in your pocket.

jinbe san

Jinbe San might be one of the cutest characters out there. You can get him as a plush pass case or as a slimmer reel case at AmiAmi.

DIY Easter Bunny Pencil Case

Posted on March 17, 2017 by

DIY Easter Bunny pencil case - Super Cute Kawaii

If you’re looking for a cute Easter time DIY, look no further! This tutorial is mostly a no-sew project, so it’s a simple and relatively quick DIY. It turned out extra adorable thanks to the supplies that I recently featured in my Kawaii Fabric review. Be sure to check out the review for more about the supplies used and other useful inspiration for kawaii crafting!

What you’ll need:

Instructions:

From your main fabric, measure and cut out: two 19cm x 10cm rectangles. From your felt, measure and cut out: one 25cm x 8cm rectangle and one 17cm x 8cm rectangle.

Take the 26 cm felt strip, fold it long ways along the center, and cut the corner on one side so that it has two rounded corners when unfolded.

For the bunny ears, measure and cut out four 11cm x 5cm rectangles. Draw a bunny ear with chalk or a pencil on a single rectangle. Pin together all 4 rectangles and cut along your outline. There should now be four ears.

Now on to assembly!

Lay one 19 cm rectangle so that the wrong side is facing up, and center the smaller felt rectangle on top of it. Place glue along the edges of the felt and fold in the excess fabric. Repeat with the second set of fabric pieces. Leave the “pocket” with the raw edge open on the outer part of the back half. At this point you should have something that looks like this:

Take two ear cut-outs and place the right sides together. Starting 1 cm from the edge, sew along the shape using a simple running stitch until you reach the other side of the ear. Repeat this with the last 2 ear cut-outs, and then turn them inside out until the right sides are showing.

Since the ears are smaller pieces of fabric, I chose to sew them together to avoid making a mess with glue. For a completely no-sew version, you will follow the same 1 cm allowance and place an outline of glue on the right side of one ear cut-out, then place another (right side down) on top of it. Then turn it inside out until the right sides are showing.

There should now be two ears, a front half, and a back half (still with an opening)!

Now glue the ears down inside the pocket that was left open on the back half, about 1.5 cm below the edge. Fold in the raw edge and glue everything down. Both ears should now be secured, and there should be a clean, sealed seam.

It’s St Patrick’s Day tomorrow so here’s some lucky clover cuteness I found.

The Puddle Bunnies know that clover makes a good umbrella! Sugar Bunny Shop has these cuties on a cinch bag and an enamel pin.

Clover and black cats are a great lucky combination. This Kutusita Nyanko letter set at Modes4u has four cute designs of writing paper and envelopes.

Okay, this isn’t a four leaf clover, but Hoobynoo’s clover necklace was too cute to leave out.
