Just before Christmas I watched the anime Azumanga Daioh with my boyfriend. He really wanted his own soft version of one of the characters, Chiyo's father, who is a cat-like creature. We couldn't find one to buy anywhere online, though, so I stepped up to the plate and made him one instead.



You can see a picture from the anime in the top right of my photo. I used it as a reference to draft the pattern for my soft version. He is made entirely of felt. The most time consuming part of the entire project was hand sewing his eyes and mouth to his head. He has no tail as his anime counterpart did not either!

I hope you like him! Cheesy

Chiyo's father! It's such a ridiculous character. Cheesy I laughed as soon as I saw it on the home page. Great job!

I never understood Chiyo's father, but I loved him! That is probably one of my favorite animes-any Azumanga craft makes my day. I think his arms look really great!
