I think last time I did any crocheting when I was a kid, I decided to give it another try and made this Totoro toy. It turned out to be quite easy! You can make one too using this pattern. Now I wish I could make my own patterns but I guess it's too soon for that.

  10. Crocheting has had a comeback. I haven't picked up the crochet hook yet but I would love one of those Colourful Nana blankets.

    Love your photos.

    1. Hi! Sorry for late response! No I don't have any tips, I just put the stuffing in, and try not to overdo it so the toy still feels soft! :)
