Hi Susan, what I have done in the past and doing now on a penguin is make a mohair shape like the body shape only smaller and sew it so the fur is on the inside. I lined this shape with a small amount of stuffing and the added the shot. I topped it with stuffing, sewed up the top and then needle felted all over it , building my animal around the shape. It worked fine as long as I didn't try and deep needle into the shape. This would have broken the needle inside and then needed to have been ripped open or discarded. Good luck and don't forget to show us what you make.
