FINISHED PROJECT: Totoro Coffee Clutch
at 7:00 AM
I definitely had a Totoro-themed Saturday and Sunday. My big project of the weekend is yet to be seen on the blog (it was a present for my favorite 2 year old), but I was so cute-d out, that I had to create something Totoro-y for myself. However, it was like 11 pm on Sunday night and I had been crocheting since Saturday afternoon, sooo - coffee clutch! Always a quick pattern.
I used all Vanna's Choice in Lion Brand yarn and an I hook. For the body of the clutch itself, I used the base from Twinkie Chan's Grumpy Octopus Coffee Cup Cozy pattern. After that I just made it up as I went!
The tummy is just one big, long white chain that I sewed onto the clutch. The eyes are a little ring of single crochets and then the black knotted a few times sewn on. He fits so perfectly on my cup. I want more more more Totoro things! What next .. a little bag, maybe?
PS - Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway! You have until this Saturday to enter!
