Sanrio Star Chef Institute exhibition in Hong Kong

Langham Place has done it again. The shopping mall in Hong Kong’s district Mong Kok has been hosting Hello Kitty / Sanrio character themed exhibitions for a while  and is currently running the Sanrio Star Chef Institute exhibition. Some of the most well-known Sanrio characters have their own little stations in this display, which is all about being or becoming a professional chef. The different parts are really great. Dear Daniel and Hello Kitty welcome visitors at the entrance of the Institute and there is a hallway which shows their chef certificates. My Melody waters the strawberries in the greenhouse while Kuromi and friends are experimenting in the food lab. Bad Badtz-Maru seems to be a famous star chef or teacher who has his own cooking show which is filmed by seal Hana-Maru. The Little Twin Stars are in charge of lectures about how to make drinks.

If you visit the exhibition you should definitely go to the upper levels of the mall, as there are many more exhibits to be found like the cool Hello Kitty ice cream truck or the cool hanging Sanrio sweets exhibits.

New Halloween fabrics from Cosmo, Riley Blake and Northcott

Just a couple of weeks until Halloween so it’s about time that we add new Halloween fabrics to our shop. We got the cutest Halloween fabrics from Cosmo in Japan. The Riley Blake Halloween fabrics are very adorable as well and great for projects with children.

We also received some Northcott Halloween fabrics. It’s our first delivery from this fabric manufacturer and we will introduce their fabrics more detailed once we’ve added them all to our shop, but we already like the gloomy atmosphere of the beautiful Halloween designs.

My Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong

Currently you can visit a My Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong’s shopping mall Langham Place. The Cafe ishiyaki+ was transformed into the My Melody cafe and will keep the theme until September 14th, 2014.  The Pop-up Cafe is part of the Sanrio Star Dining campaign which we will introduce further soon.

There are incredibly long lines for the cafe, so we didn’t eat there ourselves. The whole restaurant is decorated with My Melody and Kuromi designs and of course the food is too. There is a lunch menu, a high tea menu and a dinner menu which all contain some food sets with the designs of the Sanrio characters.

birch sewing tutorials for cheater fabrics

If you like sewing you should definitely have a look at the birch blog. The official blog of the organic fabric manufacturer birch shares wonderful and detailed tutorials made by bloggers like Straight Grain or Plum and June. Today we want to show you some great examples of what to do with cheater fabrics. You can click on the picture below to get to the tutorials on the birch blog.

Cheater fabrics are great for quilting, which is what they are probably mostly used for. But they also look great on projects like home decor pillows, bed linen and also clothes. Our favourite project of the birch tutorials is the soft baby booklet. What a great idea for babies!
