I made one of these totoro backpack clips for my daughter's anime club, and when the librarian saw them, she ordered 4 for her grand-daughters.  Here they are!  She asked that they all be a different color.



Here's the pattern!

Supplies:
For backpack clip, crochet thread and a size 2 steel crochet hook.
For a bigger doll, worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.

One 12 mm safety nose

Make the belly first, so that you can position it before adding nose and eyes at step 17.

3.ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc across

5.ch 1, turn, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc across

7.ch 1, turn, sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc across, finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Hee hee... what you don't see in those two pictures is my cat, who couldn't resist the wire tree, hanging toys and spanish moss.  It took a while to get it just right! Thanks so much for the compliments!
