Felted Bear

I couldn't resist. After finding a supplier for bear eyes yesterday I sat down and spent FAR too many hours making this:



Kristy was a little indignant that I started without her, but I wanted to get the process firmly planted in my mind before she whisks the book away. I bought the book for HER and she will be taking it with her after visiting today. All I bought for myself were the supplies.

The needle felting process takes a long time. A long, long, long time. This little bear is only 1 3/4" sitting or about 2 3/4" standing and it took almost 6 hours of stab, stab, stabbing. Not that I am complaining though. It was fun to do and the time went oh so quickly! I started after supper and it was midnight before I was done.
