Sewing Tutorial: The Totoro Bag by SewDesuNe Sewing Tutorial: The Totoro Bag by SewDesuNe

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

On my website I'm doing a series where I'm destashing my huge collection of scrap fabrics. ^-^ With every scrap I use up I make up a new little project for it, then give away the project pattern for free! I've amassed over a dozen on my website so far, but since this one is a few months old I thought I would move it here as well

This one was a blast to make >w< It's an oval-shaped purse made to look just like Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro with some cute-looking raw-edge applique. The closure on the top is even done with a leaf, and the handles are even made to be shaped like his ears ♥

The pattern is a .pdf where the first half is instructions, and the second half is a printable pattern that you assemble by taping the paper sheets together.

Enjoy!

p.s. If you do end up making it, I'd be ecstatic to see it! And I'll give you more adorable sewing patterns as thanks!

I used different colors of heavy twill and just plain cotton for the lining ^-^
