A friend of mine is making Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service for Anime North. She mentioned making herself a Jiji and I offered to needlefelt one for her. This is the result!
He stands about 10 inches tall including his ears, and has a wired core so he can slouch and tilt his head left and right. I added magnets to his feet so that he can sit on her shoulder when she wears a thin metal plate under her costume. I think I want to try more shoulder perching crafts, this one was a lot of fun. Harry Potter Owls anyone?
