The first (pink) is Phelix, who is consistantly happy (unless he's mistaken for a girl). Made with one strand pinks/purples fun fur, one strand pinkish-orangish-hot redish color yarn on the KK flower loom. He was made twice as big and folded inward to be fuzzier (and hide the stuffing better) and is stuffed with polyfill. His non-furry yarn doesn't show up nearly as much as it looks, nor does it look THAT orange.

His friend, Gafnit, is a bit of a lush. Made with 2 strands red boa yarn and one strand auburn worsted weight, she didn't need to be made twice as big, and is filled with yarn and cloth remnants.

Both are entirely out of stash, including the felt, embroidery thread, and buttons.

Phelix was originally going to be a test drive on making stuffies on the loom, but soon looked like a tribble. Once finished, he REALLY needed a face. The face made him look more like a pygmy puff (the way I "saw" them in the books- in the movies their faces were kinda scary!)

I have a feeling, as I have LOTS of fun fur and boa stash left, that I may soon be making an army.

Thanks! I am halfway done making my third, trying to see if boucle yarn will give a fuzzy appearance. Too bad I'll HAVE to make an army to destash all the furry/fuzzy yarn I have.
