Here are 2 of my felted punk rock porcupines. I got the pattern from the book felted crochet. Instead of using fun fur I used a boa yarn for the orange one and another type of eyelashy yarn for the varigated blueish one and a strand of brown sheep lambs pride yarn (85%wool 15% mohair).  I crocheted them, and then felted them in the washer.   I then used a needle felting needle and did the eyes and noses.  they need a trim but I think they are cute.

Great job!  While I think they are both great, my favorite is the multi colored one - it reminds me of something you might see on the muppets!
