If you are not familiar with the films by Hayao Miyazaki, I encourage to watch any one of them, especially My Neighbor Totoro. Last week when I heard the news that he is retiring I was devastating. My family and I have enjoyed so many of his films over and over. They are breathtaking in their beauty and the stories are so much more than they might appear on the surface. Sigh.
So this week at Plush Club the girls and I are stitching plush Totoro creatures. I found the sweetest pattern available here. I love the generosity of folks in the world of craft.
This is a sweet and very simple pattern with wonderful instructions. I highly recommend for any Miyazaki fans out there.
