Felting Adventures

I've been playing around lately with new stuff. I've really wanted to learn how to needle felt eyelids on my bears, but I had never needle felted anything. Sooooo ... I bought a kit by Marie Spaulding for a "Beary Best Friend." I can highly recomment the kit, by the way. I'm pretty pleased how little Thimble turned out. He's happily made himself at home on the hutch in our kitchen and sometimes he likes to watch me type on the computer (especially when it's about him!).

I feel fairly comfortable needle felting now (or maybe I just was feeling adventurous), so I needle felted eyelids on my newest bear this morning. After all the shaping and coloring, they came out quite nice if I do say so myself. Unfortunately, you have no picture to judge my assessment. But you will only have to wait a day or two until he has his body attached and he's fluffed up with stuffing. Not TOO much longer.

Warmly,
Cheryl

  3. Thanks Laura and Joanne! I'm impatient to finish up my new bear with eyelids. I think he's turning out quite well, but, with all of the crazy weather changes, my fibromyalgia is hitting hard. I'm still hoping I can finish him today--tomorrow at the latest!
    Warmly,
    Cheryl
