after finding a long forgotten box with lots of needlefelting stuff, I felt, it was time to felt something again.
The little 2.75" (sitting) bear is the result. The core is felted quite firmly and I added a softer layer on top of it.
It felt good to do something other than crocheting bears for a change
Lots of felt(ing)! lol :doh:
Thank you all, I appreciate your comments
Connie: I have not done much needlefelting although I love it. I had done a couple of needle felted mini bears 2 years ago and a cat and a dog. But nothing more.
There is never enough time to do both, needle felting and crocheting. I decided to crochet my bears, however on some bears I combined crocheting and needle felting.
Just try it, it is a lot of fun and offers a wide range of creativity. You can start with simple forms and build your bear/animal in layers from there.
I am sure that this little fellow won't be the last needle felted one. I just enjoyed making him too much.
