Title: Totoros & Soot Sprites
Post by: enchantedwhimsies on January 15, 2008 05:12:09 AM
I made these for my kids for Christmas and figured I should snap a pic before they get hugged to death! I them each about a dozen soot sprites too. The soot sprites are just black 2" pom-poms with googly eyes hot glued on. The totoros are from fleece scraps I had in the bin-o-many-fabrics. I used those pop-on plastic eyes too. They were fun and soooo quick to make and the kids really loved them, I find soot sprites all over the house now!

These are fantastic!  They're exactly the right colors, and I love the horde of soot sprites.  Can't have just one.   ;D

They look very well-made.  I love the detail (shape) of the medium-sized blue one's ears.

Thank you for sharing!

thanks! can you believe it was just lucky! i had thos blue fleece that used to line the cat's basket and the white was from this Mario costme I made last halloween!! i made them in a night a few gays before Christmas. I was happy with them since I am not really a sewing crafter as much as a sculpty type :)

I used the white on the hat and for the gloves. Mario ditched his mustache at this point LOL I made those cray overalls too, that was a trick!!
