Design Notes
Some of the parts of this doll are started using the magic ring technique. Here are directions if you are unfamiliar with this technique. The doll is worked in the round unless otherwise instructed. Mark the last stitch in each round to keep track of where you are supposed to stop each round. This is also done with a very tight tension. Tight tension will stop the stuffing from showing through the stitches and help the doll keep his shape.

FINISHING

– Place small amounts of PolyFill into the very bottom half of the hands and feet, leaving the top half empty. Sew them to the body so The Moogle will be in a seated position.

– Flatten the wings and sew the open ends shut. Attach them onto the body as shown in this photo

– Fill the body with the PolyBeans and place a small amount of PolyFill at the top to keep the beans from spilling. Set aside.

– Fill the nose with PolyFill and sew it and the ears to the Head.

– Using the black yarn, sew the lines for the eyes. Set Head aside.

– Using the plyers, bend the top of the wire into a shape to hold it inside the Bauble. This could be a Y, T or spiral shape. Slide it through the center of one Bauble half. Sew the two halves together leaving a small hole to stuff the Bauble and then finish sewing it together.

– Slip the wire through the top of the head and out the bottom. Bend this end of the wire at the length you want the Bauble to be above the head and into another shape to hold it inside the head.

– Fill the head with PolyFill and sew it to the body.

– Sit back and enjoy your new friend!
