Totoro key cosy pattern, Porte clef Totoro au crochet

Here is my new pattern to make a beautiful Key Cosy in shape of a Totoro. We never have enough of Totoro's poetry in our daily life, do we ?

Here you'll find instruction to make the eyes in crochet, but you can also prefer to use felt pieces or felt wool yourself with a needle, both will work, it's up to you to choose your preferred technique.
