So I'm sitting in this monster of a snowstorm thinking that I need something warm. Mabye some Hot Choco "sip"   no thats not it, Chai tea? smells good but no... I know! a hug, so I look around see my bother "hug" (he looks at me funny) nope not warm enough hmm... ah ha! a cat! "hug" ("meeeeooow" scratch!)  oww... no, well I'm a maker soooo lets make it!

It needs to be cute, warm and and cute and toasty!

Well Domo-kun is cute but if he was warm....well... ta da! 

Toasty-kun is great for staying warm and is also a great gift for your Valentine

To make him even better I decided to upcycle and only use scrap fabric destined for the the trash!
please vote!!!

Step 1: tools, supplies, and stuff!

1) Brown, red, and white fabric
2) Assorted buttons for eyes
3) Stuffin'
4) Herbal tea
5) Rice
6) Zippers/fasteners

1) Thread
2) Needles
3) Pins
4) Scissors
5) Chalk pencils
6) Optional: sewing machine
7) oh! and a ruler and/or tape measure
Love it!! Lol, your narrative is hilarious! :)
fab i love it love it LOVE IT! i used to think that a microwave would burn fabric and i didnt know wat to put in the heart is the tea for scent or do u need it not just the rice? im soooo making this and i love the last pic where domos like GIVE ME HEART RAWR! lol
Ya the tea is just for the smell, the rice is what heats up. The heat from the rice causes the tea the release the smell.
he eats hearts just like me
Whats the tea for?
So that it smells good... I want to make one of these!!!
tasty smell!
This may sound weird and is completely off-topic, but I fell in love with that closet showing in the back of the first and the second picture. Could you possibly send me a picture of it as whole? :O I think it's time for an Ikea-hack!
unfortunately it's in my sisters room and I am currently spending the year abroad in Israel. However I do know that she's had it since I could remember but it's probably not more than 10 years old. I'll see if maybe my sis could send me a picture.
Very sweet project.<br />
thanks! nothing needs to be changed?<br />
I love the idea/name! I would suggest possibly making a removable &quot;aromapouch&quot; that's in a compartment in the heart sealed with Velcro. The aroma will eventually run out (although I don't know how long/how many uses that takes), so it would be nice if you could just take out a pouch and put in a new one. Or maybe even so that you can have different aromas.
very cool idea!
I honestly think the Toasty-Kun could be a marketable idea, seeing as they have domo-everything
uuuummmm... it already has a name his name is domo<br /> goto domonation.com and l@@k.<br />
no no no no... it's a mash up of two things domo-kun and toasty (cause the heart makes it warm) so he is toasty-kun! toasty domo-kun = toasty- kun!<br /> <br /> thanks though <br />
hey!&nbsp;nice 'ible, only thing i'd suggest is scanning/taking a closer pic of the pattern to share.<br /> <br /> great minds think alike, i did a domo instructable too! http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Domo-Kun-Pillow/<br />
thanks! to be changed soon! <br />
&nbsp;Awwwwww gotta luv it!
Careful when your heart's afire, burning Love. Domo!<br /> <br /> Nice!<br />
thanks!<br /> <br />
Domo-kun rocks
&nbsp;Death by cuteness!
It's soooo cute!<br />
I love it i cant wait to make it!!!<br />
