New Pattern: Kawaii Japanese Snacks (up to 40% off!)

My 100 Day Project may be over but Pattern Sundays are here to stay! I still have a list of patterns I want to create and the first has been added to my on-demand stores.

Kawaii Japanese Snacks pattern

This pattern collects together some of the cutest and yummiest snacks from Japan: Harajuku crepes, hanami dango, onigiri, taiyaki, bear & bunny cotton candy floss and Pocky sticks! I made it partly for a new zine I’m working on – more on that later this month.

Kawaii Japanese Snacks

It’s now available in my Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle stores. There’s lots of fun stationery, homeware and accessories to choose from, as well as gift wrap supplies, clothing, phone cases and more.

Kawaii Japanese Snacks furniture

And even furniture! Society6 have just added benches, stools, tables and this credenza to their range, which is pretty cool. They’re only available in the USA and are quite pricey but it’s an exciting development. They’re also not included in the sale but there’s 25% off everything else today.

Kawaii Japanese Snacks pillow

Over at Zazzle there’s 40% off pillows and blankets, and 15% off everything else with the code WEEKENDSHOPZ.

Both those sites are based in the USA – if customs fees are an issue, check out Redbubble. The discounts happen less often (usually weekdays), but they have products shipped from regional printers in the UK, Europe, Australia etc.
