My Neighbor Totoro Plushies!

  • Sharebar

Hello everyone!  Recently, I had a custom request to make two Totoro plushies for a baby shower.  She wanted one in aqua blue and the other in light purple.  I decided to make them have different facial expressions.  The Totoros are made with fleece and felt.  They are mostly hand sewn except for the body. No safety eyes were used since they are meant for babies.  Each plush is about 10″ x 8.5″ (not including ears or arms).  I think they turned out well and I hope she likes them!  Take a look at the photos and let me know what you think.

If you want to make a custom request, please email me at for more info!

      Yeah, basically! These are made out of fleece instead of felt and are a little bigger. But it’s basically the same pattern enlarged.
