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!

It's always good to plan things out! though In the end there are some things I'd change.(bigger feet)

For those who can't read my handwriting look at the second picture
and their is a 3rd pic (you might not see it but it's there!)

Step 3: Transfer

Transfer the plans on to the backside of your cloth. I used a chalk pencils so it would be less noticeable and would wash out. You may want to wash you fabric first before transferring the design to prevent uneven shrinkage when you wash it again. 

Step 4: And cut

Cut out all the pieces; arms, legs, front, back, teeth, and mouth. You may also want to lay out the eyes and mouth on the front so you can see if you like the positioning.

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

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.
imrobot (author)  scoochmaroo5 years ago
thanks! nothing needs to be changed?
I love the idea/name! I would suggest possibly making a removable "aromapouch" 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
imrobot (author)  rattyrain4 years ago
uuuummmm... it already has a name his name is domo
goto and l@@k.
imrobot (author)  badassriffer5 years ago
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!

thanks though
hey! nice 'ible, only thing i'd suggest is scanning/taking a closer pic of the pattern to share.

great minds think alike, i did a domo instructable too!
