After working on this little baby blue Totoro for 3 days, I finally finished it! I’m actually pretty happy with the results. It looks pretty darn cute and it’s the first time I’ve ever made Amigurumi and it looked like it was supposed to. FYI: I got the pattern from Ravelry.com from user LucyRavenscar. Here is a link to her site!It’s not easy getting the proportions right. The key is the safety eyes. They make all the difference in making the face look like a face. Now, I want to make the large Totoro in gray. The one thing that’s bothering me about it now is the white part on the top that’s a bit of excess. I should’ve put that on the bottom. That one thing is quite obvious to me. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Here’s a picture of it from the side, which I especially like because of the belly! :
I think it would look better in the gray, but I didn’t have enough at the time 😦
I’m kind of amazed with myself for sticking with a hobby for this long. I guess maybe I’ve just found the thing I like most and am actually pretty good at. It feels good to be sticking with something. My crochet stash has yet to join the ranks of abandoned hobbies. Yay!
Anyway, it was pretty fun to make and I look forward to making and sharing more of my future Amigurumi projects 🙂
When I was cleaning out from under the bed recently, I found that Chester had clawed holes all over my large Space Bag, so obviously it was no longer holding air and was just taking up a massive amount of space. I took it out and removed all the clothes, took them to the hamper, and came back to find Chester exploring the inside of the bag. I suppose that’s what he wanted all along. Of course, I snapped a few pictures because he was just too darn cute not to.
Don’t worry, he could definitely breathe because of the massive holes all over the thing. He has such a goofy personality 🙂
Well, thanks for reading everyone!
