Back in April I tried my hand at needle felting properly for the first time and made the doglets that had been featured in Mollie Makes, and shortly after that I made a Moomin. The next item on my list of things to make was a moogle, which probably won’t mean much unless you’re a fan of Final Fantasy.
I wanted to get stuck into making a moogle straight away after the moomin, but work got a bit manic and the project had to be shelved for a while. Only a little while, though, and now the first of my moogles is complete!
He’s come out pretty well! The bits I’m most pleased with are his wings (which are fully needle felted, although the temptation to just cut them out of regular sheet felt was very strong) and his little ears. My only slight disappointment is that he doesn’t stand up on his own, but I’ve not figured out a way to solve that problem short of wiring him to a stand – I reckon he’ll be just fine propped up against something for now.
