Free Pattern Friday! Totoro Plush

Hey everyone! It only seemed like a matter of time before this guy made another appearance, right? It’s probably the most highly requested plush character I get, and I’ve done so many other Ghibli projects it seems only fitting.
So this pattern is for a classic roly-poly shaped plush done up just like Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro. It looks great in either gray or blue so it looks like either the large Totoro or the smaller Chuu-Totoro. You can also give it a big friendly grin or leave it off and it looks equally cute.
The belly is done by sewing outward curves to inward curves, so that makes it a bit challenging – not to mention all the hand-sewing for the ears, arms, and tail. So I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty.
I hope you all enjoy!

  1. I am totally in love!! Now I can have all the Totoros I want!! I can’t wait to enlarge this pattern for pillows too!! Thank you so very very much! #AllTotoroAllTheTime

  2. Thank you so much for sharing ! I’ve searched this kind of pattern for so long … And it is very well illustrated and explained, thanks again !

  3. Amazing pattern! I would say I’m a mediocre seamstress, at best (like I can make a Halloween costume to last a day). This pattern was so clear and easy to follow. Made the Totoro for my daughter for Christmas (and a Catbus for my son). She LOVES it!!! I can’t wait to make the new Jiji pattern. Thank you! Absolutely wonderful pattern that even a newbie can make look good.
