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 be respectful and don't sell the finished product since I don't own this character!  Thank you!

If you would like to make a donation to fuel my yarn addiction and for the free patterns, I would be ever-so grateful! :dummy:

I still haven't got the equipment to try needle felting (cannot wait to tho!) so I ended up just using felt ~ (I first tried embroidering the eyes onto a base piece of felt but time was against me)

Thank you again!

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. Hug It was easy enough to follow, but my little guy still didn't turn out as wonderful as yours. I think it's mostly the eyes - it's only my second try at needlefelting, so hopefully I'll improve. Even if I probably won't try again with another chocobo. So many pieces...

I think you did a fabulous job at just your second attempt at needle felting!  And yes, it is a lot of pieces.. ^^;  I wanted to make a bunch of different colored ones but I haven't gotten around to it yet because of how many pieces it took =P

Can't wait to make myself one, I just can't decide what color! Do you have any tutorials or resources on your needle felting? It's a really cool technique
Reply
:iconaphid777:
aphid777 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I think deciding on the color is the hardest part :XD:  I wanted to make a bunch, but there were so many pieces that I got tired after one.. haha  I'll have to make some more one day :D

As for needle felting, I don't know of any specific tutorials.  I just searched "needle felting" on YouTube and watched a few videos to get the basic concept.  I learned mostly from playing with it on my own.. breaking needles, sustaining injuries, and whatnot ^^;  Sorry about that!  You're not the first to ask, and I feel bad that I can't be of more help!  It's really just a matter of practice!

Thanks for the tips, can I ask what the material you use is? Felt? Is it a loose bag of fiber? I'm not sure where to find it in the craft store haha Sweating a little...

aphid777 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The material I use is called roving wool.  It's usually located right by the yarn section at craft stores (conveniently enough :D).  It's sometimes a little hard to find, but I generally can find it at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.  Haven't had much luck at JoAnn's Fabrics though.  Otherwise, you can always find it for sale online :)

You should check out needle felting videos on Youtube.  It takes some practice and experimenting but it's fun once you get the hang of it!

I did the thing! Sadly, I have no clue how to felt so the eyes are nowhere near as adorbs as yours. Perhaps later it will get an upgrade!
