Hi everyone! I’ve got another Ghibli pattern in tow! I can’t believe how many I’ve done so far ❤ But there was huge support for this one over the past year.

This dark brown faux suede that I thought matched perfectly made me think of what soot sprites … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Susuwatari Tote
Ah, yes! Finally I’m getting into some of the things that I love 😀 This, of course, is Totoro, the loveable fuzzy forest creature from the Ghibli children’s film, My Neighbor Totoro.
