After I made Totoro inari-zushi, I had more inari-zushi skins left, so I decided to make some very very easy character inari-zushi the day after. Character inari-zushi #2: Rilakkuma inari-zushi I must admit, I’m not that big fan of Rilakkuma. I know of it and I find it cute, but I neither own any Rilakkuma products nor am I obsessed with it.

So, according to the calendar, today’s Valentine’s day! I thought re-posting old how-to’s and bento for Valentine’s day isn’t very exciting, so I decided to make something!

This was part of my “wonderful things” post, but I got sidetracked by other wonderful things and events and plush making, so I couldn’t do this until now. So here I go!
