Totoro Amigurumi Crochet Doll

My first amigurumi doll!

A friend of mine who is having a baby decided to do her nursery in characters and motifs from the Japanese animated film My Neighbor Totoro, and I’m ecstatic! It’s one of my favorite movies, and her nursery is going to be so cute! To go with this theme, I decided to try my hand at amigurumi, the Japanese art of knitting/crocheting small, stuffed creatures out of yarn.

I decided to make amigurumis of all three “sizes” of Totoro from the movie for her baby (though I only ended up making the large grey one in the end)! I found the patterns for these on Pinterest from LucyRavenscar (which you can download for freehere). Here’s the FO shots:
