Here’s a throw back Thursday video teasing Fox Chapel Publishing’s book, Sew Kawaii by Choly Knight. In Japanese, kawaii means cute, adorable, or loveable, and arises from the need to have a little bit of child-like innocence and naivete in your life regardless of age or gender. Cuteness is a large part of Japanese culture, and kawaii has grown all over the world to inspire iconic characters that are eye-catching in their simplicity. Author and seamstress Choly Knight has captured the essence of kawaii and turned it into 22 fun and simple sewing projects that appeal to everyone from teenagers to grandmothers.
