The First Bears We Made!

It was Saturday night and Kelly and I decided we would try the new kit I got off eBay on needle felting! we were both tired but we thought we would just spend a little time trying it out! We started out with the wool roving (long strips of dyed wool) and a # 38 needle. We made egg shapes of wool first then ball shapes and connected them together. Then we made the muzzle and ears and was like started looking like a cute little Teddy Bear...we were hooked. We worked on ours bears until 3:30 A.M. ! Got them all done except doing the jointing.

Mine was a pretty big Teddy Bear that had a big smile. I decided to call him "Big Mike". I tied a ribbon around his neck and later on I sewed a big brass looking button shaped like a Teddy bear on his chest. I love him and I will always keep him!
