Mikulak, Sedgehog, whatever; there's a reason they make pool toys out of foam instead of dubbing. Change color/size to suit your fancy.

tail/wing(s) - deer hair
body/head - 1mm foam orange

mash barb/start thread; wrap to bend




clean, stack, measure (gap width) a clump of deer hair; tie in, move thread to 3/4 mark, tie down/trim butts

brush underbody with a little Super Glue and wrap to point




clean, stack, measure (tips to tail) another clump of deer hair; trim butts/tie in
