I am a huge studio Ghibli fan, so when I saw a free pattern online to make Totoro, I jumped at the chance. My kids have been watching the movie all week and were super excited too to get a toy Totoro! My favorite movie is still Howl's Moving Castle, but I love My Neighbor Totoro also. I made this with grey fleece and white felt for the belly. I was running low on cotton, but light stuffing makes him super huggable. Yay!
My parents are both really hands-on type of people. Growing up, my Mom was always sewing or making music while my Dad was remodeling the house or wood working. I finally tried my hand at sewing and have really liked it so far. My kids really cheer me on! I am just getting into the book- binding hobby and think I have finally found my niche. Thanks for looking! :D
