Baby Chocobo (with pattern) by aphid777 Baby Chocobo (with pattern) by aphid777
This little guy is approximately 7" tall. I kind of have an obsession with needle-felting eyes now :) I think my old needle was worn or just sucked.. because the eyes were pretty quick when I used a brand new needle. Also, there is wire in his legs because I wanted him to be able to stand as well as sit, but that is entirely optional. Anyway, here is the pattern!

**Please, please, please credit me for the pattern because it took me quite a while to convert my notes into something understandable! Also, let me know if you catch any mistakes or if you have any questions!

Chocobo Pattern:

As usual, please credit me should you use or alter this pattern since it takes me a lot of time to figure out and type these up and please don't sell the finished product since I don't own this character!  Thank you!

(I used a size F hook for all the pieces)

Note: There is some shaping necessary when sewing the beak to the head. I tried to get the general shape, but I liked how it looked better pinching the midline a little and turning up the corners of the mouth when sewing on.
