Cute is 'in', and kawaii is the Japanese word for "cute". Choly Knight's Sew Kawaii! is a collection of 22 projects for cube purses, electronic cases (think DS and iPhones, and more), and funky pillows and quilts for the home - all with the kawaii theme in mind.
Knight (her psuedonym is Shori Ameshiko) has an etsy store, and her products all have a fun anime feel to them, and reflect a Hello Kitty and Japanese art influence. The projects are separated into these chapters: Key Chains; Storage Accessories; Plushes; Clothing; and Home Decorations. The generous Patterns chapter has all the reproduceable patterns needed to finish all the projects.
If you enjoy kawaii-style art and figurines, then the sewing projects made by Knight will be right up your alley.
