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!

Cute free oversize wallpapers

Today we show you some kawaii wallpapers with big oversize designs. As you can only see parts or one close-up view of the characters the designs are rather simple but still lots of fun. You can really see how much we already recognize iconic characters like Rilakkuma or Hello Kitty just by seeing an ear or part of the head. Click on each wallpaper to get to the download.

New Kokka fabrics from Japan

We have many beautiful new Kokka fabrics from Japan. Most of them are oxford fabrics, but there are also some super delicate gauze fabrics and our first ever Kokka flannel fabric. We really like the England designs that Kokka has been releasing lately. Check out the fabrics with London buses, Queen’s guards or teapots. We also received many designs that have gold metallic decorations, for example with apples or cherry blossoms.

And there is also news from echino: We now carry the pretty cotton sateen collection as cotton sateen laminates.
