Since my return to teddy making I've decided to try my hand at needle felting for the first time. I ended up needle felting the muzzle, eyelids and paw pads of my teddy. And funnily enough, it turns out that stabbing a small bear in the face repeatedly is remarkably therapeutic. :oP
I'm fairly happy with how its turned out, especially since its my first ever attempt. So the teddy is coming along pretty well; I still have to sew her ears in place and work on some minor embellishments, but the actual bear is all but done
I'm currently in the process of making her a crochet lace dress and I've decided she needs a small friend so I'm needle felting her a micro bear to carry with her. Progress photos...
