completed :: November 2012

size :: 6" diameter hoop

materials :: faux fur, scrap fleece, yarn, acrylic felt, safety eyes, scrap cotton, wooden hoop

notes :: I fell in love with Ghibli films over a decade ago in part because of these little guys. I've never made a plush version because I already have four different licensed versions ;) So I thought I'd do a hoop. I couldn't shake an image that's been floating around on tumblr, which reads "aw yiss *****rf*****g star candy" but obviously I wasn't quite putting that on a hoop. It doesn't photograph very much but there is iridescent thread on the konpeito ("star candy").
