'Malaysian Mother Wows Japan with Meals Too Cute to Eat!'

From Oona McGee on Rocketnews24: "Kyara-ben, boxed bento lunches featuring cute comic characters, have been around in Japan for some time. Usually created by housewives with a lot of time and skill on their hands, getting to feast on one in person, though, is about as difficult as nailing jelly to a tree. So itโ€™s no surprise that people in Japan were green with envy when they caught sight of these adorable meals. Created by a Malaysian mother of two of the luckiest daughters in the world, these plates of healthy cuteness have earned her a huge fanbase, with more than 250, 000 followers eagerly keeping track of the new creations as they appear on her Instagram account. From Lady Gaga to Batman, no feast is too difficult for this artistic mum!"

Blogger Cherie from youandmie.com has a great tutorial on how to make your perfect Totoro costume and I would like to highlight the tutorial for Totoro fans. While the tutorial itself makes for a child-sized costume, you should be able to make it in any size by sizing up following these same instructions. Here are the items that you will need: > Fleece fabric for the bodysuit and hood > Scraps of fabric for eyes, nose, etc. > Fiberfill or fabric scraps for stuffing the ears and tail > 1/4 inch wide elastic > Safety pin > Velcro > 12โ€ณ invisible zipper > Thread in main fabric color, white and black > Large tracing paper > One piece pajama and a hooded jacket for the patterns > Hand sewing needle I broke down Cherie's tutorial into 8 parts to make the process a bit easier. Part 1: Bodysuit (Steps go with above photos in order) > Place pajama on tracing paper so that the pajama is aligned with the edge of the paper. > Trace the outline of the pajama adding a seam allowance (Cherie uses 1cm). > Move pajama and trace the armhole and necklines free-hand. > Round the pattern around the hips and thighs to get a better Totoro-shape. Add 3/4โ€ณ to the leg bottoms for hemming. Pattern for front piece of bodysuit is now ready. > Place another tracing paper on top of the front piece (extending the edge by 1/2 inch as seen in the photo). Trace the same front pattern again but raise the neckline in the back to math pajama. Pattern for back piece is now ready and you will cut 2 of these pieces.
