We saw the cute little felted bears in a recent Mollie Makes magazine - all inspired by a new craft , I got on the computer and ordered some felting needles and wool ( www. cobwebcottage.co.nz)
Several hours later I finished this little bear ( about 8cm high).
Now it all looks easy in theory but be warned -the needles are very sharp and I now have one very sore finger. Those cute little bears in the magazine - I swear they must have been airbrushed photos or some poor soul spent days stabbing them to get such a perfect finish. As you can tell this is not about to become a new obsession for me!
