  1. Hi, I just wanted to tell you that you are such a gifted crocheter! I admire your creativity and generosity of sharing your talent with us viewers. I have made several little white “totoro” “ghosts” based on a tutorial that you put up on You Tube a while ago. I just have so much fun making them. Now, this new grey Totoro! I can’t wait to try making it. Thanks so much!

      I had to learn it to make my sackboy, but it works wherever. I’m actually going to incorporate this technique more, as I hate sewing and I don’t really know how to do it.
