For those of you who like totoro, there's what I made using felt for $0.99!
You'll need three felt in total, black, grey, and white. I got mine from micheals for $0.33each.
draw your Totoro on paper, use it as a guide when cutting out totoros body. You'll need 2 identical pieces.
Repeat this step for eyes and belly (2 small circles and 1 rectangle with rounded corners)
Arrange all the pieces together before sewing (or hot glue). Don't forget the 3 ^^^ on totoros chest area. as for totoros nose, an upside down triangle will do
Sew or glue all pieces together leaving a small opening to stuff your totoros with cotton balls, close off the opening and you're done!
