Kawaii Crepe & Dango

While updating all the designs in my print-on-demand stores for new products (more on that soon), I realised a few characters should get their own spotlight. I’ve started with a kawaii Crepe & Dango from my Japan Snacks pattern.

Both these characters were originally drawn during my 100 Day Project and have only appeared on a few printables since then – get the extremely cute Crepe printable fold-up notelets from my Payhip & Etsy shops.
