I love all things Japanese, including nonsense plushies and whatnot. So when my friend offered me a whopping $65 for a Domo-kun, I just HAD to. It's up to my hips, and is wider than my body, and 9 inches thick. Quite the plushie!

In addition, i made a fabric ball with some fabric scraps, and received some extra credit in my clothing class! I found the pattern at craftzine.com.
