Free Pattern Friday! No Face Plush

Hi everyone!
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!
