Totoro Amigurumi Patterns and Stop Animation

It's Hayao Miyazaki's 75th birthday today so I just had to make a post in celebration because I am very happy he was born! He has brought us many great films, one of them being my favorite of all time, Totoro! I have a few Totoro inspired patterns here on my blog. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Nesting Totoros
  2. Totoros and Soot Sprites
  3. Catbus
  4. Sootball Worker
I also made my first stop animation film using my Totoros called "No Room On The Bus". It's choppy but still kind of cute.

I hope you enjoy the patterns! Post pictures on my facebook page Amigurumi Freely. Or post them on instagram with the hashtag Sharon_Ojala.

  Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and help keep the patterns free. If you do give a donation, please accept this note as my sincere thanks and know that you have helped a great deal.
Many Blessings to you!

Tin Man Amigurumi

Meet the adorable Tin Man!

This pattern has been in the works for a while. Today I felt so great that I had finally finished him then I realized I forgot his axe! But instead of keeping you waiting longer just so I can get that part done, I'll release the pattern and add the axe asap. Check back for that update.
So far in this series I have the Wicked Witch and her Flying Monkeys done. Both of those patterns have my own spin on them, meaning they aren't designed to look just like the real characters, they are meant to be more on the cute side. I hope you enjoy the patterns! More on the way.

She has her own personality of course and comes with a carrot sled if you're interested in making one right here. She also comes

Carrot Sled For Winter Bunny

Carrot sled for the Winter Bunny!

I was preparing the Winter Bunny pattern for publishing the thought came to me that the Bunny needed an orange sled instead of a red one then the next thought was carrot sled, of course! That's so fun, so I just had to make one! If you been following this blog then you've already seen the Winter Mice and their red sleds and the Snow Mouse. This is my
latest series that I've named "Winter Friends".

Next Pattern Release

Just a quick update:

I released my Winter Mice pattern and had many requests for a hat for them to wear. And I couldn't resist! I'm writing up the pattern now, it will be for one color with instructions on how to change colors so don't worry if changing colors scares you. I hope to have this pattern up fairly quickly but it's late right now so it could be tomorrow. Just check back or watch my facebook page, I always update there when I release a new pattern.

UPDATE: the pattern is now posted here

See you soon!
