One More Totoro - Qualified Perceptions

One More Totoro
A while ago, I made blue and white totoros for Amelia and Isabelle. At a later visit, there was some hinting that they wanted a grey totoro too, but the white one had been lost. I was kind of grumbly that the previous toys had to be found first, but then they successfully found the white totoro after all. So here is a Big Grey Totoro, and a bunch of soot sprites. I tried a little bit to add a crochet grin, but it didn't look right, and the whiskers aren't quite right either, but the soot sprites are perfect! (And really really easy.) (When crocheting with fun fur, the "wrong" side is fuzzier.)

B: "Totoro!"

L: "Some time I want to go to her house and you can get it for me. And the other one is for my Bexa. But I want the blue one."

J: "Wait! That's the person who made the fish! I recognize the construction techniques!"

I have promised that the next time we are in Boston we will come see you. (not to get the blue Totoro, clearly, as that would be a midnight raid a little closer to home)

Hah! :)

(Though it's a different construction technique than the fish (crochet v. knit). Though I guess they fall into the same general "made of yarn and stuffed with stuffing" technique, as opposed to carved from wood or made out of Lego... ;-) )

Oooh, cool. Yeah the soot sprites are great! They really look like the movie. You are the best aunt. :) (I also approve that you required that they find the white one. ;-)
