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

Celebrate the holiday season by transforming a family recipe into the perfect gift using Emma Jeffery’s tried and true Handwritten Recipe Tea Towel Tutorial. Spoonflower Berlin crew member Maria shares how she put a German twist on this project using her father’s Stollen recipe in the next installment of our Handmade Holiday Blog Hop!
Maria: Every holiday season I look forward to time spent with my family. While my home in Berlin is only a couple hours north of Dresden, where my parents live, heading home for Christmas is always the most special trip. The excitement that was once filled with gifts and surprises has now been replaced with simple traditions I look forward to year round. My favorite being a slice of my dad’s Stollen, a recipe he only makes once a year. Stollen is a traditional German bread containing dried fruit topped with sugar or icing meant to resemble Jesus as a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths. And while I might be a bit bias, my dad makes the best Stollen! This is my first Christmas working at Spoonflower and after seeing the original recipe tea towel I knew I had to make one for my dad for Christmas. Follow along to learn how to whip one up for your friends and family this holiday season! [Read more…] about A German Take on the Classic Recipe Tea Towel
