DIY Totoro Shirt

I love Totoro. When I looked at my Totoro shoes that I posted here, I thought that it would make a super cute shirt if I added some simple pieces of felt to a casual grey shirt! :)
 I had an ugly grey shirt that I never wore. So, I decided to make that shirt into a Totoro shirt.

  • White and black felt
  • glue gun and LOTS of glue sticks. 
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle
  • grey yarn
  • Grey shirt
 ~Step 1~ Wash the grey shirt or make sure that the shirt is clean
~Step 2~ With the white felt, cut out a long oval and 2 small circles. ( The sizes of the oval and circles depends on what you think would look best.) 
~Step 3~ With the black felt, cut out a small triangle, 2 small circles that can fit on top of the white circles, and 4 thin long strips. 
~Step 4~ With the needle and grey yarn, embroider 3 upside down v's on the top row. Then embroider 2 upside down v's on the bottom row. 
~Step 5~ With the glue gun, glue the white oval on the shirt 3-5 inches below the neck hole. 
~Step 6~ Then glue the white circles 1-2 inches above the white oval.
~Step 7~ Glue the black circles on top of the white circles. 
~Step 8~ Glue the black triangle in the middle of the eyes. 
~Step 9~ Glue 2 of the black strips below the eyes next to the nose. Repeat for the other 2 strips on the opposite side.
~Step 10~ Let the glue dry

And voila! You're done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. 
Have a great day of crocheting and crafting!

Collaboration with JP Custom Kicks

 So, JP Custom Kicks customizes shoes for people, and the owner wanted to collaborate with me to make a shoe. However, he couldn't think of anything that I could crochet to put on a shoe, so instead he made these SUPER cute Totoro Toms shoes, and I will make a plush Totoro that will come with the shoe if you purchase it. I received this pair of shoes on Sunday and when I saw them, I thought they were fantastic!
These shoes are so cute! :) They were cleverly made too. 
And instead of the back tag saying Toms, it says Totoro instead! So clever! 

I am currently still making the Totoro, but it will be done very soon. All of the credit goes to JP Custom Kicks for making the whole shoe. Here is his Instagram where you can see all of the shoes he customized:  

Have a wonderful day of crocheting and crafting!

Sweet Heart

Isn't this such a cute heart? :) I got the pattern from Ravelry and downloaded the pattern onto my iPad. The Ravelry pattern can be found here:

The heart turned out bigger than I expected since i used a D hook. I ❤️ Clover hooks!!

Here are the supplies I used. I crocheted the heart with Loops and Threads Impeccable Solids in Arbor Rose and a D Clover Crochet Hook.
That's all for today!

Have a wonderful day of Crafting and Crocheting!!
