I’m adding another Ghibli character to the collection! Fans of Spirited Away hopefully recognize this mysterious creature! This strange guy gets his name from being a black blob with no face (kaonashi in Japanese) and instead wears a Noh-style mask.
He has several key moments in the movie where he offers the main character, Chihiro, bath tokens and gold. I made sure with this pattern to include a huge variety of small items he can hold, including the bath tokens, gold, a classic heart, and even tiny little knitting! (His needles are toothpicks!)
The body is super simple, basically being a long dome. So it comes together very quickly. Sewing extra things for his hands is optional, but does add some more hand-sewing time to the overall work load. With all that in mind, I rated it a 2/10.
As always, the main pattern has templates to make the mask, mouth, and bath tokens in applique, but you can also use the included embroidery files as well ❤ The mask can fit on 4″ x 4″ hoops, and the full mask and mouth can fit on 5″ x 7″ hoops.
I hope you all like it!
