Kawaii & Creative Crafts Stuff @ Modes4U
I love love love kawaii stuff! Especially little things and toys for my daughter. Especially ones coming from the land of kawaii – Japan!
So when I stumbled across a Hong-Kong based online shop called Modes4U, I was literally giddy with happiness. Like a kid in a cookie land. You see novelty stuff and original kawaii items are hard to come by here in Phnom Penh. So to satisfy my kawaii cravings I usually shop online.
Anyway, after crazily browsing the site, and getting stuck for hours ooohhh ahhhing over the gorgeous crafting fabrics as well the the art sets for kids, I settled on DIY Cupcake Rubber Stamp Kit. I was so torn coz all the DIY craft kits especially the food kits were so cute, but I remembered I just recently bought two sets of dessert Konapun kit from Korea, so the rubber stamp kit won.
I also had to get myself a fabric. Believe me, choosing was so hard as there were just a lot of beautiful and unique fabrics. These are just perfect for fabric crafts. If you love sewing, this will be heaven. I picked a travel themed fabric coz I’m planning to make a passport holder and a travel crochet hook case.
After all that I waited a couple of days till it arrived by post. Shipping was pretty quick and after about a week or so, I had my little package. Woot! Items were well packed and I do love opening boxes like this. Makes me think of Christmas, noh? Inside is my retro fabric and the stamp kit. The shop also gave a cute little deco tape.
The fun little stamping set. This is a really great gift for older kids specially those creatively inclined. It might look complicated but its so easy to make and so much fun. My daughter has been stamping out cards, little bookmarks with this. A tip, don’t let the clay get dry. Seal it if you don’t finish using it all at one time. I wonder where I could buy more of this stamp clay to mold?
The fabric. Very retro and easy on the eye print by Jay-Cyn Designs. It’s made of 100% organic cotton and they sell it at 0.5 per set. I’ve started to make a travel crochet hook with it.Love this one. This is a great place to find really cute fabrics.
