Shiny Things by Orin Drake | Shiny Things Gallery | Fandom | Final Fantasy | Plush | Felted Plush Carbuncle

Another experiment with the same-ish Carbuncle pattern that I've been playing with--only this one has some needle felted details! Exciting, I know. I wanted him to have a "fuzzy" look, and so... I have succeeded. But not before breaking two felting needles. It's my own damn fault for felting directly to fleece, but... geez. You wouldn't think this sweet little guy would be capable of snapping metal, but he is. "Strong enough to BREAK METAL, yet gentle enough not to crush my hand."

Of course, the jewel in his forehead is a large gorgeous Swarovski crystal, and the eyes and lovely little glass beads. Those fuzzy accents are hand-dyed Merino wool from Flights of Whimzy, and it's soooo soooooft.
