idea-list #7

Sorry this one is a touch late - what with bank holiday shenanigans (which mostly involved being ill on my part - lame) I thought it wouldn't hurt to keep you waiting slightly on this one. Abject apologies and begging humble forgiveness, let's get stuck in on what I've been finding on Pinterest this week, shall we?

This week I have been mostly looking at Amigurumi and Kawaii crafts, and you can find more inspiration on my Pinterest board!

If I ever needed a more convincing image to make me want to learn needle felting, this is it! Appa from Avatar - The Last Airbender (which incidentally I just watched all day long in bed while feeling poorly). Would you just look at his tongue! I LOVE this show, as you can well see in one of my very early blog posts about a blanket I made inspired by the series, and I am always on the look out to make more things inspired by this *perfect* cartoon - recommendations welcome!

SQUEE is all I can say about this adorable Penguin cushion! Found on Etsy you can buy this critter from Peanut Butter Dynamite, along with several other absolutely gorgeous kawaii cushion designs. I will certainly be using this shop as inspiration for my own designs (though of course I will strive not to copy directly and will not sell any similar designs as my own - support Etsy sellers!)

The picture of these cute little tea cups inspired me to order a porcelain marker from Amazon (I've tried baking Sharpies' on mugs before, didn't work for me - I'll let you know how the pen works out!) and has given me so many ideas for this month's Kawaii themed #DICraftSwap (hosted by lovely Hannah). The faces are so full of expression, don't they just make you smile? I even found a picture full of kawaii facial expressions that I am sure I will have a lot of fun with.

Another super cute crochet cushion - I really love the colours on this bunny and think it would any room, and the face is so lovely too. Again I can't spy any pattern, but this should be fairly straightforward to make myself!

Do you like kawaii/amigurumi? Recommend any Etsy shops or great websites I can drool over?
