***There is a typo in the PDF: row 11 of the body should be hdc x 5, not 7*** Learn how to make this amazing Totoro drawstring backpack with this pattern! Also included is instructions on how to make a cross body bag instead of a backpack! Two-for-one! This pattern is recommended for people who are very comfortable with amigurumi. This IS NOT a pattern for beginners. You'll need to know the hdc, and how to increase and decrease with it. In the last 3 pictures, there is a water bottle in the bag. It's a perfect bag when all you need is some water, some cards & IDs, and your keys. This would make a great gift for children, teens or the young at heart. :) You'll need ww yarn. Get 300 yards of your chosen body color to be safe, and you'll also need small amounts of a tummy color, a leaf color, and some white and black. You will also need to know how to make pompoms, or have a pompom maker! I used the pink one from clover, 1&3/8" but bigger ones would be cute, too. Also, googly eyes. Because duh. And if you want to make totoro's big cheshire smile, you'll need white felt. This pattern will not teach you how to do amigurumi, or how to sew pieces together, or how to embroider a mouth etc. You need to have a basic knowledge of these things already. :) This is a written pattern with no charts. The pages all have pictures and helpful notes. You may sell whatever you make :) -------------------------------------------------------------------- If you'd like to purchase an already made product, please visit my etsy shop to see if it's available BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY crochet in the round sew on limbs and other pieces
