I’m soooooo sorry for the lack of update here. Actually, a lot of things have been happening since the launching of Fat Bunny Second Collection. I got pregnant and decided to resign and move back to my hometown in Bekasi for good (which I actually wrote on my personal journal). I also started to work from home and turned some space in my house into a little office 🙂
Working from home as a full time creative worker (can I even call myself ‘creative worker’?) and also a mom-to-be surely bring a lot of inspirations for new collection. So I decided to put the unsold stuff on sale. There were not many of them left. Actually 2/3 were already sold. Still I hope for a fresher beginning for the new collection! :3
Sooo, here they are:

So yesss, finally in February, Fat Bunny comes with new look of website, collection to shop, and easier purchasing method! Yay! 😀
This collection consists of canvas multipurpose pouch, pin badge and fridge magnet. The canvas pouch was inspired by my daily need of something to bring during lunch break that could accommodate my big smart phone, wallet &hand sanitizer yet smaller than tote bag. So I make them 24 x 20cm, big enough even for my A5 sized sketch book. And yes, they come with pin badges matching each design!
This one is my personal favorite as someone who loves books yet often abandons them :p
Below is the complete gang!
I also have some pin badges sold separately and… FRIDGE MAGNETS! 😀
Well, actually fridge magnets came into my mind when someone was asking me what to bring during a house warming party. Some people can’t just come empty handed yet buying things for someone’s house might be a bit tricky. Yet I think, fridge magnet is always a not so expensive yet safe option. So, yes, I gave them a try.
The thing is, I had a lot of fun making them. Really hope that they can cheer things up!
I hope that the Star Wars fever hasn’t ended yet because I’m launching the first product of Fat Bunny: Star Wars x byputy pin badges! 😀
There are 6 Star Wars’ classics: Darth Vader, Storm Trooper, Chewbacca ‘Chewie’, Yoda, Luke Skywlalker and his light saber, plus the beloved Princess Leia Organa. Then in the name of the 7th Star Wars, The Force Awakens, I added Sphero the BB8 and half-heartedly left R2-D2 ;’)
Only limited stock available & for shipping in Indonesia.
Personally I love pin badges because you really can put them anywhere!

A couple of weeks ago, someone sent me email responding to my post about Indonesian lack of reading interest. Her name is Alicia and she’s a lecturer from US on English Language Fellows program sponsored by US government and currently assigned in Universitas Andalas, Padang, West Sumatera. She told me about “The American Corner” in the library and some programs including a mobile library. We had discussion about improving “Culture of Reading” in Indonesia, which we know: very low.
She asked me some suggestions, how to attract students and more local people to read. Me, as an Indonesian, gave the most practical answer I could think about: Indonesians, especially the young people love gimmicks and following trends. I told her that she could produce bookmarks, stickers, or cheap pen for everyone who borrows-reads-returns a book. I told her that maybe she can appoint the “coolest” kids as a library ambassador.
The discussion touched me. I’ve always thought about this issue. I really want more Indonesians to grow reading habit because I deeply believe that it would improve our lives in a lot of aspects. I tell my closest ones to read, my brother, my best friends, or everyone that takes my suggetions seriously. However, when I read Alicia’s email, I realize that she is trying harder than me. She’s doing something real for my country, and I can feel her sincerity.
So I decided to do something real, as well.
I’m making a set of FREE printables that you can download and print for free. There are 4 bookmarks, 3 mini posters, 2 reading list template, and 2 rounded stickers. I designed it with Kelincuy and the Hipster Cat. I made the Kelincuy designs more feminine while the Hipster Cat ones are more suitable for boys 🙂 For the mini posters, I also made the combined version of them so it can be used for couples.
So now you print them and it would look like these:
I hope that by having these cute bookmarks, stickers, posters, and reading list, we all will be reminded and motivated to read 🙂 You can use them, print them as many as you want and give them to people around you. Give it to your brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, neighboring kids, friends, even random strangers you meat near the library or bookstore.
Let’s spread the spirit and good habit!
Let’s do it! Let’s go reading!
