super cute kawaii overload...



Don't know whether it is due to some sort of spring madness or giddiness over the end of winter but I've joined Pink Castle Fabrics Kawaii Fabric Club.  Here is the dictionary definition of Kawaii:

"Kawaii, ("lovable", "cute", or "adorable") is the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture. It has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms. The noun is kawaisa ("lovability", "cuteness" or "adorableness").

The term kawaii has taken on the secondary meanings of "cool","groovy", "acceptable", "desirable", "charming", "non-threatening", and "innocence". "

These Japanese novelty prints are crazily charming. Because of their tiny scale you get lots of imagery in a small amount of fabric. They make me smile...

Who can resist a squirrel talking to a bear print?



or slightly psychedelic bunnies? 



or fingertip-sized multi-colored hedgehogs among others?!



Could pink hair be next?
