Grubbie the grub worm

What the heck is this you ask? This is Grubbie... he's a garden grub who's eaten too much and looks sleepy. His face is needle felted and his body is wet felted over a resist and then stuffed. I needle felted his rings over him to give him a more bubble like shape.

I used merino wool for him but the colored purple/blue wool for his body took AGES to felt so I think it must have been that super fine merino I've heard about cause it really did take ages. I had to roll and roll and to make sure it was well felted I chucked it in the washing machine. He actually reminds me of a toy I used to have as a kid called a glow worm.
