Travel Moogle

I crocheted my husband a Moogle a long time ago but I wanted to make him one he could take with him. I just finished making a 9 doll so I decided to make a Moogle with a similar pattern. This is his Valentine's Day gift. I gave it to him early :) I couldn't wait. What do you think? Here is a pic of what a Moogle looks like for those of you who don't know. This person drew a vary good pic of it. Click Here for Pic Moogles are from the game Final Fantasy :)







This is a pic of his entire Valentine's Day Gift. Guys need a place to put Jewelry and trinkets too ;)


*this pattern hasn't been tested so if you run into any problems let me know and I will do my best to help :)*
