Went to manga con #Aninite today and finally got to meet some crafters who I’ve been following for so long! This gorgeous piece is by Maria from CaffeCupcake. She takes commissions for anything you want so check out her Facebook page (caffecupcake)! Her page is mostly german but you can write in english too. #vienna #manga #convention #kawaiicrafts #polymerclay #fimo #caffecupcake #rainbow #pony #handmade #diy #customgifts #smallbusinesss #kawaiibrands #deviantart

Hold onto your acorns, the next tutorial is Totoro!!! I made this using a kit from 1127Handcrafter on Etsy. I was amazed by the quality of the wool considering it was cheaper than Hamanaka. This wool is the best I’ve tried, it was easy to pull apart, felted super fast and did not leave ANY wispy bits on the surface (which is a problem with Hamanaka wool candy, and a huge issue with Daiso kits). The leaf hat was made quickly out of clay. There’s a popular needlefelt Totoro video by @itsbubz on YT though I’m not sure if she used this kit as well  #totoro #ghibli #kawaii #needlefelt #needlefelting #maqaroon #myneighbortotoro #studioghibli #pompoko #spiritedaway #mononoke #ghiblicrafts #bubzbeauty #felting #cutecrafts #geekycrafts #anime #catbus #ponyo #arietty #laputa #hayaomiyazaki #miyazaki #disney

Mint macaron keychain just arrived from @amy_emii (emiidesigns on Etsy, formerly Crafterzdelights on Youtube)! I love her videos and ordered this after watching a charm update. My bf often takes my keys by accident so now he can finally tell them apart 😝! It also came with a  free heart hair clip on the business card. Love that sort of attention to detail πŸ’– #mint #macaron #macarons #macaroon #macaroons #kawaii #keyring #charm #etsy #resincrafts #emiidesigns #castingresin #youtube #diy #handmade #handmadegifts #kawaiigifts #kawaiicharms #kawaiicrafts

How many people do you know who say things like “I used to be good in this subject in school, I just never pursued it.” or “I had a talent for art/sport/music, I could habe gotten pretty far with more practise.” Some people prefer living with the potential of becoming successful instead of trying and possibly failing. The best decision I ever made was to start a business at 26 because I was sick of simply fantasising about a successful future. If you have an idea then, seriously, start it today. The longer you wait, the more responsibilities will come into your life making it harder to sacrifice everything for one dream. Do it when you are young and have time, health and freedom on your side. #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #career #motivation #dali #typography #dream #business #startup #success #happiness #smallbusiness #careertips

Digging through some old folders and found this illustration I did from 2009, inspired by a midsummer trip to Sweden. The characters are from my manga series Harajuku Zoo which you can still buy from www.sweatdrop.com. Sven (bear), PonPon (koala), Carlos (hedgehog) and Sakura (bunny). Would you guys like to see a tutorial based on these four, and which one is your favourite πŸ˜€? #kawaii #manga #illustration #mangaart #bear #koala #hedgehog #bunny #rabbit #cutekoala #midsummer #sweden #ikea #flowercrown #flowers #dancing

Alpaca overload tutorial coming tomorrow, a collab with LittleSurprisesYT! I will show you a great technique for making needlefelt animals without having to felt & attach four separate legs. This method so easy and also saves you a ton of time! I felted this one out of real alpaca wool #alpacaception! It wasn’t as easy to work with as I imagined (looks a bit derpy πŸ˜†) but I really wanted to show that you can needlefelt with any fluffy wool or pet hair. #kawaii #alpaca #alpacas #cutealpaca #cria #babyalpaca #alpacafarm #alpacaevolution #alpacawool #needlefelt #needlefelting #crafts #cutecrafts #fluffy #woolly #fatalpaca #squishy #plushy #arpakasso
