Vulpix catches fire

Vulpix is a teeny fellow but with a big character

Hey hey crochet lovers. The next project on the agenda was this fiery little fellow – the fox Pokemon, Vulpix. He’s on a smaller scale to some of my other projects, but there’s still a lot of character packed in his tiny form.

What I love most of all about Vulpix is how sparkly his dewey little eyes turned out. They really help elevate the look to the anime level, and it’s well worth learning how to master this technique if you want a more accurate look.

Attempt one at Vulpix’s neck did not go well

Breaking needles – a common mishap for the needle-felter

It’s fair to say I experienced a few problems with this one, from breaking a needle trying to perfect Vulpix’s and eyes to completely redoing the neck piece after the first one made him look like a misshapen horse. He still doesn’t stand up too well but what  the heck.
