Mini Totoro keychain is made with a simple and easy shape using embrodery yarn.

My Neighbour Totoro is an ultimate favourite movie of mine. Always puts a smile on my face, no matter what my mood.

I made a Totoro keychain a while ago which was sold at the craft fair. This one was more a classic shape but I was up for trying something slightly different and as a mini version.

I did experiement with creating a mouth for this which you can see below. Something didn’t fit through so I deceided against it. Maybe the mouth would’ve looked better with felt.
