Hi from the glorious, snowy Kootenay Mountains of BC, Canada! I raise Rex, Champagne d'Argent and New Zealand red and broken red rabbits for meat, and would love to make use of their pelts after harvest so dream of teddies (blankets, hats, etc... ), thus, here I am, to learn and be inspired by your beautiful bears!
Welcome to Teddy Talk, Kyersten - we're happy to have you! I personally don't needle felt, but many of our members do and someone will probably see your post and help you out. We also have a library filled with great info on all aspects of bear making . . . it might possibly have something of interest to you. And you've probably noticed we have a 'Needle-felting' section on the home page of our site. Good luck with your plan!
