Studio Ghibli Ootori-Sama Door Stopper (Free Crochet Pattern)

After making No-Face & Boh, I have decided to make Ootori-Sama to complete my Spirited Away Door Stopper set. Ootori-Sama, sometimes referred as ‘the yellow duck’, are the clients of the Bathhouse in Spirited Away. They are minor characters in the film but they can be your major door guard at home!
