thankyou andrea for showing me your bears etc.

now all i have to figure out is how to get started on something like this.

do you mold the felt into shape or is it cut out and sewn together like in normal bear making?

I suppose there are many ways to make them, Wendy, but the way I taught myself is to take some rovings and poke it with a special felting needle. This mats the wool together. If you do it enough it hardens and shapes.Hope this is helpful.

Thanks everyone!

 

 

A felting needle has little barbs on it so that it grips the wool and matts it...it also leaves a mighty big hole in your finger at times...OUCH!!

Thanks for that. Do you know what the history of it is as I have never heard of this.

So far they have all been gifts or exchanges...but someday I might get my act together and sell them.

I don't know the history...but there is a place in New Zealand that sells needle felting kits and supplies. It is called bearycheap.com.
