With your tapestry needle, fasten off the white thread end into Hello Kitty's head. Be careful to only work in and out of the holes in between the stitches of the shape.

Hello Kitty Face, with yellow and black thread

First of all, always be sure to be sewing in and out of the holes in between the stitches.

Nose, with yellow thread (DMC 444)

Choose a hole that is in the middle of the front of Hello Kitty to be her nose. On the other side of her head, insert your needle and aim for the nose hole.

Tie a knot, then re-insert your needle into the same hole and pull the thread out of the back part of her head, where you can fasten off.

Eyes & Whiskers, with black thread (DMC 310)

You will sew on her eyes the same way you sewed on her nose. Refer to the picture of Hello Kitty to decide where her eyes will be in relation to where you sewed on her nose.

I like to start with the right eye and then move to the left eye.

Once I am done with the eyes, I move on to the whiskers. I always start with the middle whisker, then make the top and bottom whisker. From the left eye I work to the left in and out of the holes in between the stitches that run parallel to the eye.

Once you are done with the left side, repeat the same thing on the right side, beginning with the middle whisker, then the top and bottom.

As you are sewing the last whisker, aim for a hole that is at the back of Hello Kitty's head to fasten off.

Bow, with any color

In a magic ring, *ch 2, 2 hdc, ch 2, sl* repeat this once more and then close the ring.

Cut your working thread end to a length similar to your non working thread end and then tie them in a double knot on one side. Make sure to tie the knot extra tight to really push the shape of the bow.

From here, you can either sew the bow to Hello Kitty's head, or cut the thread ends short and use your glue gun to attach the bow to Hello Kitty's right ear.

Once the bow is attached, you're done!

Unless... You want to make earrings!!

Make another Hello Kitty head, and then use your jewelry pliers to open up the ring that is at one end of the earring hook.

Next, pick a stitch at the top of Hello Kitty's head and use your tapestry needle to loosen the top of the stitch. Try to pick a stitch that is towards the middle of her head, and just work your needle in and out of the stitch to loosen it until you begin to see a loop taking shape.

When the loop is big enough, you can slip the open ring of the earring hook through and then use your jewelry pliers to close the ring in order to secure Hello Kitty to the earring.

Repeat this with your other Hello Kitty and you will have a pair of earrings! Everyone will not only think they are super adorable, they will be super impressed to learn that you made them all on your own!

Step By Step:


(RND 1) 3 sc in magic ring (3)

As you go to close the ring, push the stitches up through the middle of the ring you are tightening.




(RND 2) 2 sc inc in each st around (6)

I like to essentially crochet inside out so I can make the ears in a continuous round and not have any attachments. Due to this, you will have to maneuver your needle as you complete the first stitch of this round so you can conceal your non-working thread end with in the head shape.

Thread over and pull through the first stitch. Then remove your hook form the loop you just made and move it under the non-working thread end. 

Re-insert your needle into your loop and then proceed to complete your first sc while making sure to pull the non-working thread end away from your needle and the sc you are making.

After this, you can complete your inc in this stitch and finish increasing around.


 




 

 

(RND 3) 2 sc inc, sc in next st, *ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc in last ch, 2 sc inc in next st, sc* (repeat this last part just one more time) (9)

In this round you will complete the ear shape in a continuos round.

Ch 3 is the beginning of the ear shape


Proceed to sc in the ch's



 
At the end of this round, you should be able to see the ear shapes. Continue on to RND 4.



(RND 4) *2 sc inc, sc in next 2 st* (12)

In this round, be sure to only work in the original stitches, skip over the ear shapes. As you skip over the ear shape and insert your needle into the stitch that is just after the ear shape, thread over and pull through and pull on your working thread end to tighten the loops on your hook. 

You can also tug the ear shape upward as you tighten the loops to bring the stitches even closer together.

By doing this, you are moving the stitches closer together over the ear shape in order to ensure that there is no giant hole in between your stitches.

 

Once you are done with the round, the shape will look something like this. Then you can continue on to the fifth round.
















(RND 5) *2 sc inc, sc in next 3 st* (15)

(RND 6-7) sc in each st around (15)



 


(RND 8) *dec, sc in next 2 st* (12)



-Tuck in the non working thread end-

You can use your stuffing stick to help with this if you like.



(RND 10) *dec, sc in next st* (9)


-stuff-

Roll up small amounts of doll stuffing at a time and proceed to use your stuffing stick (I use a chopstick) to stuff Hello Kitty's head.


 

(RND 11) dec around until closed


With your tapestry needle, fasten off the white thread end into Hello Kitty's head. Be careful to only work in and out of the holes in between the stitches of the shape.




 



Hello Kitty Face, with yellow and black thread

Nose, with yellow thread (DMC 444)

Choose a hole that is in the middle of the front of Hello Kitty to be her nose. On the other side of her head, insert your needle and aim for the nose hole.

Tug on your thread just hard enough to pull the knot into Hello Kitty's head. Then tie a knot on the front side to create her nose.



Then re-insert your needle into the same hole and pull the thread out of the back part of her head, where you can fasten off.


Fasten Off



Eyes & Whiskers, with black thread (DMC 310)

You will sew on her eyes the same way you sewed on her nose. Follow along below with the pictures of Hello Kitty to decide where her eyes will be in relation to where you sewed on her nose.

I like to start with the right eye and then move to the left eye.

Once I am done with the eyes, I move on to the whiskers. I always start with the middle whisker, then make the top and bottom whisker. From the left eye I work to the left in and out of the holes in between the stitches that run parallel to the eye.

Once you are done with the left side, repeat the same thing on the right side, beginning with the middle whisker, then the top and bottom.

As you are sewing the last whisker, aim for a hole that is at the back of Hello Kitty's head to fasten off.

Bow, with any color

In a magic ring, *ch 2, 2 hdc, ch 2, sl* repeat this once more and then close the ring.

Cut your working thread end to a length similar to your non working thread end and then tie them in a double knot on one side. Make sure to tie the knot extra tight to really push the shape of the bow.


From here, you can either sew the bow to Hello Kitty's head, or cut the thread ends short and use your glue gun to attach the bow to Hello Kitty's right ear.






Before repeating what you just did, you can move your stitches closer together so they don't take up a lot of space on your ring and you can have more room to create the other side of the bow.

You can also remove your finger from the ring at this point and finish creating your stitches into the ring.


Repeat,  ch 2, 2 hdc, ch 2, sl into the magic ring and go ahead and close the ring.

Next, pick a stitch at the top of Hello Kitty's head and use your tapestry needle to loosen the top of the stitch. Try to pick a stitch that is towards the middle of her head, and just work your needle in and out of the stitch to loosen it until you begin to see a loop taking shape.

(RND 1) 3 sc in magic ring (3)

Loosen the loop on your hook as shown above before proceeding to the next round.


Insert your hook into the first stitch of the next round, thread over and pull through the stitch (two loops on your hook). Now pull your working end to tighten both loops on your hook while pushing the shape you made up between the working loops (as shown above). This ensures that the base of your pumpkin will be flat.

Stem, with green thread
ch 6, sl in each ch starting in second ch from hook, sl stem to body




 
 Pick any stitch at the top of your pumpkin where you were decreasing. Insert your hook through one of the stitches and thread over with the green thread. Pull the thread through the stitch and proceed to ch 6.

 

ch 6, sl in each ch starting in the second ch from hook

 


  Pick another stitch at the top of your pumpkin to sl the stem into.


 Cut the working end and proceed to fasten off the green thread like the threads of the pumpkin's body were fastened off.

Face:

Thread your tapestry needle with your black thread, tying a knot at one end. We will start with the left eye. Decide where you want the tip of the left triangle eye to begin, then insert your needle through a whole on the backside of the pumpkin and aim fro the hole that will mark the top of your triangle with your needle.




 Once you have pulled the thread through the hole on the other side, pull the thread hard enough so that the knot on the other end is pulled into the body of the pumpkin. This will secure the thread while hiding our knot.

 
 Begin to weave the thread in and out of the three holes that will make up the left eye. Right before completing the eye, decide which hole will mark the tip top of the right eye. Then aim your needle to that hole as you complete the last stitch of the left eye.


 Follow the same steps for the right eye as you did with the left, but right before completing the right eye, decide which hole will mark the beginning of the pumpkin's mouth. 

I start on the left and work my way over to the right.


Sew in a zig zag pattern in and out of the holes along the front of the pumpkin to create the mouth. 

When you have reached the desired length of your pumpkin's mouth, pull the thread through a hole on the back of the pumpkin.


Tie a knot close to the pumpkin's body and then re-insert the needle into the hole under the knot and pull the needle through to another hole on another side of the pumpkin.


 Pull the working end hard enough to pull the knot into the pumpkin's body to secure the face stitches and hide the knot.

Snip off the working end close to the pumpkin's body with your scissors.


Then admire your finished miniature pumpkin!

 Mini Totoro!



This pattern is for a teeny tiny totoro! It is a little tricky and best for more experienced crocheties, but you can follow the pattern all the same with any size hook or yarn you are most comfortable with because a bigger size can make this pattern easier to follow.

 Also! I have a video, so you can follow along on YouTube too:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rnBxHg51sI 

I love seeing people's work, so share with me!

Materials:
Crochet Hook 1.50mm
Embroidery Thread DMC 844 & 310
White Thread
Sewing Needle
Tapestry Needle
Small Amount of Polyester Fiber Fill (Doll Stuffing)
Small Piece of White Felt
Chopstick (or something with a pointy end for stuffing)
Scissors
0.05 Pen (to mark sewing points for face & chest details, optional)
Small Gold Safety Pin (for stitch marker, optional)

** I work in a continuous round and that includes any little body limbs- In this case, Totoro's ears and tail.

Abbreviations:

RND round
sc single crochet
ch chain
inc increase
st stitch
dec decrease (sc dec single crochet decrease)

Pattern: 

RND 1  3 sc in magic ring (3)
 


RND 2  2 sc inc in next st, ch 3, sc in each ch starting in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc inc in next st,
ch 3, sc in each ch starting in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc inc in last st (6)

RND 8  sc in each st around (15)
RND 9  sc in next 2 sc, ch 2, sc in 2nd ch (last ch) from hook, sc in next st and each remaining st around (15)
**Depending on your tension, you may only need one sc before making the tail. The tail should be made at the middle of Totoro's back, so you can estimate.

RND 10  sc dec, sc in next 3 st, repeat around in remaining stitches (12)


**Skip over the tail and continue working in the next st

RND 11  sc dec, sc in next 2 st, repeat around in remaining stitches (9)

At this point, it's time to stuff! Use your pointy end (I like a chopstick) to begin stuffing small amount of polyester fiber fill into your Totoro's body.

 RND 12  sc dec around until closed

Use your thumb to poke his booty up so it becomes a little flat so he can stand upright.

Take a tapestry needle and fasten off the two tails.


Next, cut out three small pieces of white felt, two small for the eyes and one bigger for the chest (as shown).

Lay them up against Totoro's body to begin cutting out circles to be sewn onto Totoro's body.

I just eyeball it until the pieces are about the size and shape I like, but you could trace out circles on the felt if that is easier. Just cut inside the line that you drew so your markings can no longer be seen.


Once you have your eyes circles cut out, you can use a 0.05 pen to put a dot on the felt to mark where you will sew the knot that will be Totoro's eye.

Just make sure that the side with the mark will be the side facing down on Totoro's body so no one can see the pen mark in case you sew a little off the mark.
Take a strand of DMC 310 (black) and split the 6 strands into 3.

Thread 3 of the strands onto your tapestry needle and put the needle through the backside of Totoro through to his front side and the tiny piece of felt (through the dot you made with the pen).

Sew the eyeball on with a knot. You can do an FK knot back through the felt and Totoro's body if you wish.

Once you have made your knot (or FK knot), insert the needle under you knot and through to the other side of Totoro's head to sew on the second eye.



Insert the needle under the second's eye's knot to the middle of Totoro's face to make a nose. 

Sew a knot (or FK knot) onto the surface of Totoro's face and insert the needle back into Totoro's body through to his back where you can fasten off the thread.



Next, take the chest piece you cut out and with your tapestry needle and 3 strands of the black (DMC 310) thread, sew on 3 upside down V shapes.

You can use your 0.05 pen to mark sewing dots again too.



Once you have sewn on the 3 V's, take a regular sewing needle and white sewing thread to sew the chest piece onto Totoro.

Insert the needle into Totoro's back, in order to hide you knot and pull it through the front of Totoro and the chest piece.



Sew around the edge of the chest piece to secure it to Totoro's body. You don't have to sew all the way through Totoro's body to secure the felt, just sew through the surface stitches on the front of the body. 

Fasten off once you have sewn all the way around by inserting the needle through to the back side of Totoro.



TA-DA!

Please share your Totoro with me!
