22nd September '15 - Hello Kitty Fairy Patch.

I bought a Hello Kitty iron on patch. I've stuck it to a money bag that I'll likely wear the next time I attend an anime/sci-fi/comic convention. It's similar in design to a poster I have where Kitty has fairy wings. I'm not sure it she's supposed to be an actual fairy or whether she's just dressed as one. Her hair ribbon is made of pink flowers and she's holding a wand that also has a flower on the end. It's very tactile too and the material feels like felt with cotton stitching for the flowers and dress.

I'm not sure if it's an 'official' Hello Kitty product but it's not really that important. Even the creator of Hello Kitty, Yuko Shimizu, said she's not bothered by unofficial products so long as they are high quality and adhere to the Hello Kitty standards. All official Hello Kitty products contain the Sanrio logo. Often the Hello Kitty logo will vary in style and font but the Sanrio logo is always the same with the o in the shape of a heart.
