Needle Felted Teddy

I took workshop on needle felting and this is what I came up with.
The bears didn't feel a thing while I was stabbing away , but I am here to tell you my fingers did. Had a few good hits on myself until I learned the knack!!!
I had a good time doing it and then I dressed the one in my FAVE!! Leopard print. sparkly beads and gold!!! Remember I call my place "Magpie's " fot the love of shiny objects!!!! VBG

...these felted bears are just wonderful, Maggie! And they're so happy...look at those smiles you put on their sweet little faces! Are they jointed also? Lots of time (and stabs), but lovely results, as always!

Now I am CONVINCED you are twins, Maggie!!! wonderful little bears they are!
And my to-do list, about the same place as the Russian Leaves are, for you!

Thanks Phy and Gypsy..... I love doing the needlefelting.... Now that I have the embellisher I want to do something with that, but there is nothing like the 3 dimentional work. Stay tuned....I wonder what will happen to-morrow!!!! VBG

Hello, Maggie! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your uplifting comments! I think your bears are wonderful and I know how it feels when the wool arrives! Oh my, I get so lost in needle felting!

Your beaded goddess is fabulous! I've always wanted to do one of those. If you visit my Website you will see that I make ceramic beads, dolls, jewelry and a myriad of other stuff. You are an inspiration, too, because you remind me to pay attention to my other art forms!

I still poke myself, now and then, especially on the 3D work. OUCH! I think I've probably bled for every needle felted work I've created! :)

Many bright blessings!
