I made this for my Totoro-loving boyfriend for our anniversary last Saturday. It took me a long time to make, since he is always around and I wanted to keep it a secret. I spent the night before our anniversary locked in the bathroom pretending to have "stomach problems" so I could put on the finishing touches!









I got the pattern for free: http://heavens-hellcat.livejournal.com/420.html.


EDIT: Yes, I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Lake and Snow, some brown Lily's Cream & Sugar for the nose and claws, 9mm safety eyes and a size F crochet hook. Cotton Ease is just so darn easy to work with (hence the "Ease" I guess).

Oh my....that's so cute and adorable. I am a big fans of Totoro too.
You did a great job!

Are you going to make a family of Totoro? I mean the medium totoro, the small white totoro, and a little black ball thing. (I don't know their English name)

oh and the Cat bus too.

UN-believable! I love Totoro too and this is a great rendition -- I hate to disagree but I don't see eyore at all ... though I am sure that Totoro is big enough to encompass all wonderful things, including the adorable donkey!

I have to stop looking at it, coz it's too cute and lovable. The more I look at it, the more I want it, but I don't know how to crochet

floating moon - crochet is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Doing an amigurumi like this usually requires only one type of stitch (this pattern has a couple more thrown in). Why don't you try it out? I recommend starting small and after you've made a few small things, try Totoro. There is so much info available on the internet, including free patterns to get you started. Good luck!
