(Pattern at some point...)

If you haven't seen My Neighbor Totoro, you should (and I don't mean the one with Dakota Fanning.)

I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in lake and stone to knit the outside. I knit it in the round until the seed stitch edge (which is only on the front and back. I used a combo of machine embroidery and glue to make the totoro, and I used plastic canvas, cut to shape and sew together as the lining, sewed fabric to that then into the bag.

The acorn buttons were from Jo-Anns.

I'm going to make myself one of these, as this was for a swap, and as I do that I'm going to write up the official pattern.

AHHH This is SOOOO cute! I wish I could make one! Unfortunately I've only just learned how to knit- literally last Saturday- so I can't as of yet. But I will! Eventually!
And WHAT is this BLASPHEMY about Dakota Fanning?? She's in a version of this movie? UGH. Ew. I had no idea. Didn't want to know. Will now deny ever knowing.

I LOOOVE TOTORO!!!

I didn't know they did one with Dakota. Was she a voice character? Or was it not animated?
