Remember the days when you were told “don’t play with your food”? We hope you’re ready to throw that rule out the window for today’s tutorial by the cut-and-sew connoisseur, Na’ama. The Berlin-based maker is back with a new DIY plushie that we know you’re going to love soy much. Sharpen your chopsticks, grab your fabric shears and get ready to create the most adorable nigiri plushie.
Na’ama: Hello there sweet makers! Do you have a great love for Japanese food like I do? Well sometimes I think that this love is not only about the fact that it tastes amazing, but also because it’s a very aesthetic cuisine. The thing with food is that no matter how pretty it is, it will always be eaten at the end (or rot). This is why you need to have this Nigiri dude by your side, on your desk or on a shelf, just to remind you forever how great sushi is! Oh, and I created a companion friend for him – Mr. Soy, to spice things up! [Read more…] about Prove your Love for Sushi with this DIY Nigiri Plushie
Remember when you were in elementary school and giving out a box of candy conversation hearts was the easiest way to express your admiration for your classmates? While the way we express our love (and taste buds!) may have changed, we can’t help but get that feeling of nostalgia when they make an appearance every Valentine’s Day. With some help from Spoonflower designer caja_design, we’re showing this popular sweet treat a little DIY love with a beginner-friendly garland using one of our no-sew friendly fabrics, Fleece! Keep reading to see the full how-to including step-by-step instructions for a blanket stitch.

Grab yourself a sample swatch of our latest and greatest fabric, Dogwood Denim™ and get ready to turn it into a super useful keychain zipper pouch for just $5.
