My Neighbor Totoro

I have found some of the most creative projects involving the characters from the movie My Neighbor Totoro. If you have never seen it, well you should go out and get it. It is a great movie.

The first project that I found was a large stuffed Totoro, a pattern created by the same person who made the adorable octopus I made last weekend. That person has a youtube vlog, with the name Yarnyard. The creations he comes up with are just amazing!

So this is the project I am currently working on, and so far I have just made the body and one of the ears! Unfortunately I have been crocheting for too many hours recently, so I need to try to force myself to take breaks so that I don't hurt my hands and wrist. 

The second project that I found is the awesome cat bus that is shown in the film.

I really hope to make this project by Sharon Ojala of Amigurumi To Go and the smaller Totoros in the future!

UPDATE 4/3/13

I finished making my Totoro! All of the sewed on pieces are a little crooked but that's OK, I think it came out pretty good for my second pattern of amigurumi!
