And I didn't know there were already so many on DA... I was lucky enough to come across a lot of Totoro merchandise while making this so I got some ideas about how to do the ears and whiskers and all else.
I also felt like including all the different ones on DA since there were so many different ways to go about it:[link]
(The ear flaps!
(I think they used a sewing machine... and better material! 8D)[link]
(They included his stomach and markings!)[link]
(Another with ear flaps! :3)[link]
(I can't crochet... more power to 'em!)[link]
(I love the big shiny eyes!)[link]
(Actual fur material! :B)[link]
(Knitting seems to keep the ears up better.)[link]
(This one looks a lot like mine, actually!)[link]
(I got the idea of adding a tail from this one when I found out the brim wasn't long enough)
