I made this hoop for monkey_girl in the Box of Sunshine swap.



It's the smallest Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro! Smiley

At first I was going to do my usual style of flat applique.

But when I got this far, you could really see the yellow through the white (not so much in the picture, but much more in person), and I wanted him to be a brighter white, so I decided to stuff him, so there would be white polyfil between him and the yellow velvet.



I really like the 3D effect, and will probably be using this technique again!

Adorable! Love the 3D effect, too. It really makes him pop.

I would have had poly fill sticking out all over. He looks great!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thanks so much! They've definitely become one of my favorite crafts. Smiley  And yeah, it was a bit of a challenge to keep all the polyfil inside the applique, since it kept sticking to the velvet and trying to stay outside!

She really shouldn't have eaten that bug . . .

Going with the 3D effect was definitely the right choice as the little critter really pops out, literally and figuratively!

I'm so glad you made a post for this, I am super enamoured of that awesome shiny golden yellow, it's amazing! I am not familiar with the creature but he (she? it?) is super cute and I agree that the poofy version is so much better than flat. Looks really great.
