Ideas on how to use Hello Tokyo fabrics by Robert Kaufman

A couple of days ago we added fabrics from the super cute Hello Tokyo collection by Robert Kaufman to our shop. While browsing the web we found some incredible pictures on what to use those fabrics for. We saw these photos on the blog The Red Thread written by Lisa Tilse. Lisa designed the collection for Robert Kaufman and showed really great examples of what to do with the Hello Tokyo fabrics. We’re totally in love with all those adorable cushions which you can sew with the big Kokeshi doll fabric. How do you like these ideas?
