Cute and Crazy Japanese Stickers at M.Autio

Posted on November 14th 2014 by in Cute Shop Alert!


There are few things I love more than stickers and Japan really leads the way in the cute and crazy characters adorning them. I stumbled across M.Autio on Etsy, who have the most amazing selection, so I picked out some favourites.

stickers

What is going on here?! They’re meant to be bears in costumes, but really it looks like that poor bear is just being chewed in the head by a variety of animals.

alpaca stickers

Fluffy puffy alpacas!

rilakkuma stickers

I wish my local supermarket sold Rilakkuma groceries.

mindwave stickers

I love these fat round animal stickers.

bird stickers

A whole sticker pack of cute holographic birds.

M.Autio have hundreds more amazing sticker sets, plus washi tape, fabric, needle-felting kits and more so do go and have a browse.

Guest Post: Most Wanted – Squishable Cinnamon Bun

Posted on November 13th 2014 by in Most Wanted!


This is a guest post by Miss Muffcake, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

Squishable Cinnamon Bun

15 inches of sickly sweet cuteness in the form of a cinnamon bun! So cute you want to take a big chomp out of it! But wait – you cannot eat this yummy delight! Why? It’s a cute plushie by the folks at Squishable.

Foods with faces and super cute food is a favorite of mine, from tattoos to toys I go for foodie fun. So this cinnamon bun with the cute rosy cheeks and cap of white frosting is on my wish list of cuteness to consume. He would look snuggly in my bed and help me dream of cinnamon sweet delights. What is your favorite cute food?

Cute Cushions at Society6

Posted on November 12th 2014 by in Home Cute Home, Let's Go Shopping!


You can never have too many cute cushions/pillows in your home, and I could really do with a few more for my sofa. I like to browse Society6 as they do a great job of promoting and supporting independent artists and there are always loads of kawaii designs. Here’s a few of my current favourites.

society6

How many Ghibli characters can you spot? KiraKiraDoodles‘ doodles are so adorable and will even keep you entertained during the ad breaks.

society6

I’m really hoping axolotls will be the next big thing in kawaii, as I’ve loved them for years. Hopefully this design by Petits Pixels will win over some new axolotl fans!

society6

Hedgehogs don’t make the greatest pets, but you can pretend you have a plump little hedgehog friend with Sophie Corrigan‘s super cute illustrations. She has lots of axolotls too!

society6

I’ve had this bunny favourited on Etsy for ages as a print and it looks lovely on a pillow too. It’s by Elisa Sassi and is definitely going on my wishlist.

society6

And a panda for old times’ sake by Whitney Lynn Art. He’ll keep you company while you snack on something that’s probably less healthy than bamboo!

Which one’s your favourite? You can follow all the artists on Society6 to see their new work and hear about regular free shipping offers.

Guest Post: Ciali in Kawaiiland

Posted on November 11th 2014 by in Cute Shop Alert!


This is a guest post by Becky Helms, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

Ciali in Kawaiiland

I’ve been smitten with decoden lately and have spent an inordinate amount of time scrolling through some amazing Etsy shops that specialize in the super cute craft. One of my favorite finds so far has been the shop Ciali in Kawaiiland. Everything Ciali makes is so densely packed with handmade charms and dreamy whipped cream. What’s not to love?

Ciali in Kawaiiland

I love the idea of my phone being completely encased in kawaii. Her color palettes are spot on and I love how this case packed to the gills but doesn’t look messy.

Ciali in Kawaiiland

This was the case that got me hooked on Ciali’s work. I mean, look at that Luna! The colors and simplicity of the handmade charms are just perfection. So stinkin’ cute!

Check out Ciali in Kawaiiland’s Etsy shop, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

wererabbit2006

I’ve featured WereRabbit‘s cute amigurumi bunnies in a carrot before, but I just spotted they also sell a whole rainbow of bunnies! I pretty much want one in every colour so I can string them together as the cutest bunny bunting. How amazing would that be?

Guest Post: Most Wanted – Rainbow Alpacasso

Posted on November 6th 2014 by in Most Wanted!


This is a guest post by Frainy, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

pixie storenvy

Alpacasso (or Arpakasso) are adorable alpaca plushies from Japan that come in many colours, even rainbow! Their cute faces and fluffy bodies have proven them to be a hit online, and nowadays you can see them anywhere from anime conventions to many, many Storenvy shops.

pixie storenvy

The alpaca on my most wanted list is, you guessed it, a giant rainbow one! These ones are available at Pixie on Storenvy and they come in many different sizes. I have one that is very small, but I definitely want a large one so I can cuddle it properly! The colours remind me of sherbet or candyfloss, and it almost looks edible! Rainbows always make things better, so a rainbow alpaca is obviously superior to its pastel coloured counterparts. Which is why the rainbow alpaca is on my most wanted list!

UK folks – Tofu Cute have just added some rainbow Alpacassos too!

Posted on November 4th 2014 by in Let's Go Shopping!


This is a guest post by Lulu, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

kawaii meow

I don’t know about you, but I love sewing and I love cats, so what’s better than sewing accessories with cats on! Etsy have some great stores to purchase cat related fabric, one excellent shop is Kawaii Meow. How adorable are these kitties playing on a red background.

kawaii meow

Which colour way to choose from these cute cats?!

kawaii meow

Cocoland fabric is always super cute; I’m tempted to buy it all!

But what should I make first – a dress, a cushion or a cute bag? So much to make, thank goodness I have lots of kawaii fabrics to choose from.

cat tape measure

Cute kitty sewing doesn’t have to end with fabric; there are plenty of pretty accessories you can find too. Such as this sweet cat face tape measure and these happy black cat buttons, both from Ebay, to inspire and help whatever you are making.

Happy kawaii sewing!

Super Cute Creators Interview: Mei of Amigurumei

Posted on October 31st 2014 by in Super Cute Creators


It’s time for another Super Cute Creators interview. Today we’re finding out a little bit more about Amigurumei, whose adorable amigurumis we’ve featured many times. They’re all made by Mei, who’s also just released a book of patterns featuring Hello Kitty and friends (read my review). Read on for another inspiring look into the life of a kawaii creative!

Mei of Amigurumei

Who are you and what do you make?

My name is Mei and I’m always (albeit secretly) pleased whenever someone refers to me as an amigurumi “artist”. Those outside my crafting circle, however, will know me better as a features writer and craft columnist for a local newspaper where I live.

I’m a 80s baby and I love all things Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Blinkins, Popples and cute Tonka cupcake flip dolls. I love snuggling up to a good horror flick, but I also have these cravings for participating in Japanese conversations — that’s where my anime time come in.

I’m a self-taught crocheter and I have been making amigurumi for almost three years. I share my amigurumi adventures on my blog, www.amiguruMEI.com. I recently published my first book, Hello Kitty Crochet, in conjunction with Ms Kitty’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

amigurumei

Where do you live and what’s it’s like there?

I live in the sunny city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It’s been a little rainy lately, but that’s just a great excuse for me to pop out my Le Petit Prince umbrella, which I hardly use! We have a growing crafting community here, with a lot of talented home-grown crafters who are very much in the zakka phase. Due to our multi-cultural influences, most of us speak at least three languages, which we learn from school and at home. I recently picked up a fourth language – Japanese – in hopes that one day, I’d be able to watch anime without the subtitles. The classes, which I’m still attending, have been great help actually — since I can crochet and watch anime at the same time without having to look up all the time to read off my MacBook screen :)

What was your first experience with kawaii culture and why does kawaii inspire your work?

While I and my siblings were huge toy hoarders (not collectors) growing up, I must say that it was not until I watched Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro did I really start becoming obsessed with the whole kawaii culture. I must’ve probably been in college by then. I’ve since watched each and every Studio Ghibli production, and I still squeal each time I chance upon Studio Ghibli merchandise. Part of the reason why I decided to learn how to make amigurumi was because I wanted to make my own Totoro dolls. Now most of my work takes inspiration from anime characters and the hopelessly-cute world that they live in :)
