Totoro forest spirits

Inspired by the magical creatures of My Neighbour - Totoro and the need for a subject for a mini-workshop ... these fellows were created.

Meet Totoro (large grey) Chu-totoro (blue) and Chibi-totoro (smallest little forest spirit).
A really good way to spend a couple of evenings - one to practice and the second to share the knowledge :)

I rather like needle felting :)


  1. Ooooh! How cute. I've got needle felting "stuff", but have never used it. Can I come for a mini-workshop too or maybe you could do a tutorial? Take care.

  2. I have never done felting but have seen very pretty things out there. I like your felting!!

  3. So cute; I must re-visit needle felting 'one day' but I suspect that day will be months away!

  4. Awww, bless. I am most taken with Totoro - and the fact that you have not severely pierced or lacerated your fingers. xx

  5. .............and needle felting likes you!! They are lovely. You have caught their original expressions so well. xx

  6. Oh these are just the cutest!! I gave up with needle-felting after trying to make a badger, but you have inspired me to try again! April x

  7. Awww so cute. I've not tried needle felting, it looks complicated.
