I sort of got an idea for a project when my applique skills are better. I got the idea after watching "My Neighbour Totoro". Right now, the idea in my head is to make a wallhanging of the Totoro...don't have any pictures to show you what a Totoro looks like...the best way I can describe it is its a big furry thing that's like a cross between a rabbit, a cat, and an owl and smiles like a Cheshire cat. Very cute.
Anyways, instead of doing him in regular cotton I was thinking I could do him in fur. Then I wouldn't have to try and applique the jaggedness of his fur. But then again...appliqueing fur sounds kind of hard. Fur is thick and probably not the easiest fabric to sew. If I were to do this Totoro how would I go about doing it (where I can keep the most amount of sanity)?
