One day I thought to myself, "I should make Transformers into alpacas" and so I did. This is Nautica! I’m proud of her antenna. It’s felted very firmly, so it stays wherever you put it.
Her fleece is minky sherpa fabric over a lightly needle felted core, while her face, armor, and legs are needle felted. This combination of sewing and needle felting worked out very well for me: I have a lot of trouble with sewing anything complex, but needle felting everything takes so much time and energy that it restricts the size and detail of what I make. Alpacaformers stand much larger than most of my purely felted creations, at about 8" tall not counting ears/armor (9" with ears). She has glass pebbles in her back legs that balance out her weight so she doesn't faceplant.
This design will be available as a made-to-order (and sometimes a ready-made will be available) in my Etsy shop!
