Super Cute Kawaii Patterns

After weeks of not much happening, now I have too many things to share! Here’s some new patterns and products with The Super Cute Book of Kawaii, SCK animal mascots and more.

Free Printable Patterns

I was wondering what kind of free printable to do for the book anniversary and decided on patterned sheets using designs and characters that you might spot in my book. These are really flexible as you can use them for origami, journaling, gift wrap, snail mail and all kinds of crafts.

There’s 4 patterns available + an envelope template you can print on top. These are free to download during July only so don’t miss out.

SCK Animal Mascots On-Demand

While I was making these patterns, I also made one with the SCK animal mascots and liked it so much I had to put it on products. It’s available now on loads of fun stuff at Society6Redbubble & TeePublic (+ Zazzle in the next 48 hours). Look at all these nice things for summer.
