Susuwatari Infestation

This day is a big drag. I’ve basically been up to my elbows in temper tantrums, diapers and baby formula spit-up all morning. I needed to do something cute and dare I say whimsical to get me out of my work-funk, and with Sym leaving tomorrow morning to spend the long weekend with her grandparents I thought a cute surprise for her would do the trick.


This was left outside her bedroom door. But what’s inside?


Soot sprites! (or susuwatari.)


Easy to make with just black tinsel or glitter pompoms, small googly eyes and glue. Tie them up in green tissue cut into leafy shapes and some twine and you have a small present sure to delight any little Studio Ghibli fan!
