DIY Totoro Felty

And pattern! I've uploaded it to Google Docs here, if you'd like!

Just cut out the pattern...
And sew all the "face" pieces onto one of the grey body pieces using straight stitch or back stitch.  Then add the back grey body piece and blanket stitch it all together!
Hello, my neighbor!
By the way, has anyone gone to see the new Ghibli movie, "Secret World of Arrietty" yet?  It's based off The Borrowers! I was waiting for my sis to come up so we could go see it, but I don't know if I can hold out. :)

Now I just need to figure out what to stick this forest spirit on.  He could be another headband, or a finger puppet, or an applique on something else altogether!


  1. So cute! I need to make something out of felt. It looks so cute and easy(ish).

  2. Too cute! Also, thank you for my V-Day card! It was exactly what I needed to cheer me up on a "blah" Tuesday after my vacation :)

  3. Love love love!!!! <3 Thanks for sharing this! I might have to try my hand at some Totoro finger puppets (maybe make Totoro and his two mini companions). =)

  4. arrietty is amazing!!! i hope you got to see it

    1. we did! it was great! (Though i admit I cried at the end...haha!)


Your thoughts - go!
