This idea came to me in bed one night, and I couldn’t sleep until I’d planned out every detail, knowing in my head that I might not remember it when I woke up. Thankfully, I did, and the Tanooki suit hoodie was born.

The little Tanooki Mario patch came from eBay, and I got a Frog suit one with it. …. New project? Hmmm….

P.S. I know the leaves on the drawstrings are supposed to be red, but I thought the green looked more vibrant.

Material Notes

Patternlessly made via my measurements and a yardstick of snuggly anti-pill fleece, fully lined with soft, black t-shirt cotton. The tail detaches via giant button and button hole for a less conspicuous look, and the front tummy spot is a kangaroo-style pocket.

    That was skillfully made! Could you make a detailed review on how you did it? It looks difficult. Kudos to you for making the cutest Tanooki suit ive ever seen :)
