Totoro Cup

I've been having cup envy problems over the amazing Totoro mugs on etsy...

But with my tiny budget I could never justify spending 40$ on a cup, even if it does have one of my favorite movie characters on it! 

DIY to the rescue! I found this tutorial on Pinterest and decided to give it a whir. 
Basically you can draw on a cup with sharpies and bake it in your oven, and the design sticks (more or less).

Thus my Totoro was born. I got the mug for 50 cents at Goodwill but it was originally from Ikea! 
What would you draw? I have several more ideas in mind...this would also make an amazing birthday present!

very sute! i made my bestie a totoro hat for christmas -- even got the ears to stick up straight, and everything! it was one of my first sewing projects (i was scavenging a couple of old sweaters) and one of the first times i took something entirely from a nebulous idea in my head to an actual finished project. so fun!
