I came across this tutorial whilst looking for ideas http://mairuru.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-make-sarubobo-plush.html. I have adapted the pattern to make it my own... although I;m sure there'll be similar out there. I have added faces to mine, so they're not traditional.
It took me all day just to make 4 of these. So although they are small and cute, they are quite time consuming as they are hand stitched thoughout.
I have added key chains to them, to make them saleable at the craft fairs I attend. (Not sold any yet).
