Kawaii Gudetama DIY Crafts

Posted on May 25, 2018 by

After featuring a few Gudetama crafts in the post on the Heekkong YouTube channel, I’ve been on the look-out for more options from other great creators. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve collected so far!

If you missed it, or don’t subscribe to kawaiisweetworld, she recently posted a Gudetama cake pop how-to that’s both tasty and super cute! What could be more fun than making something that’s also edible? Although they might be too cute to eat…

For fashion accessories, you can’t get much cuter than the Gudetama backpack by Time to DIY. It requires very few supplies and just basic sewing skills, which is great if you’re just starting out or are on a budget.

Kawaii Gudetama DIY Crafts amigurumi crochet pattern

There are a few cute amigurumi options out there for this character, but the Gudetama pattern from Stuff Susie Made also shows you how to crochet a bacon blanket! There are video clips to help you along through the process as a bonus. If you complete this project and find yourself in need of even more Gudetama amigurumi goodness, she’s also got a cute sunny-side up Gudetama pattern to make.

Minicuteclub has a cute tutorial on how to make a simple squishy Gudetama phone case. Her voiceovers are in Japanese, but her English subs are easy to understand.

And for the polymer clay artist, I highly recommend the Gudetama figurine DIY from TheCraftMaiden. The footage is high quality and thorough, with all materials listed in the description. I really love the extra detail of the realistic shell ‘cap’ he’s wearing!

Cute Characters, Most Wanted!

Most Wanted: Pokemon Dolls

Posted on May 22, 2018 by

I still enjoy playing Pokemon Go and love seeing all the cute new products from the Pokemon Center in Japan. I’ll be able to shop in person later this year but it’s still hard to resist sometimes.

Pokemon Dolls japan

I’m especially smitten with the Pokemon Dolls range, which make the characters look like extra-cute plush dolls. Why is this cuter than a regular plush? I don’t know but it just is!

Pokemon Dolls Pikachu mascots plush

I had to give in and order one of these Pikachu mascot figures, which look just like the human-sized mascots you might meet in Japan. If you’ve always wanted to visit the Pikachu Outbreak events in Yokohama, this lets you have a tiny piece of that at home. It’s a blind box series but I’ll be happy with any of them – hoping for Dittochu though.

Pokemon Dolls kawaii plush

You can find most of the Pokemon Dolls collection at Japan Stuffs in Japan, which I can recommend. There’s some items at Pokecenter Loot in the UK too and loads of plush at the official US Pokemon Center.

PS. Want to win one of these plushies? Japan Stuffs has a giveaway over on Twitter.
