New Bear from a New Pattern! And link to a giveaway

Well... I had said I wanted to try my hand at a needle felted muzzle... so I did!

It didn't turn out quite like I pictured, but since it's my first try, I'll let this one slide. This little one isn't complete yet, (and no, that pin is not through it's ear, just kind of harmlessly clamped on to the outside)... they have a little Halloween friend and a few other embellishments.

I put coated wire in the arms for poseability and this little gal is made from faux fur, wool, suade and little plastic eyes.
Currently nameless (although Pumpkin springs to mind... wonder why?...) I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this little one.

Oh no! She dropped her staff!!


Also! Gumi Gumi Island is having another lovely giveaway! Her stuff is just so cute! You will be able to choose one of the following little Halloween creatures!


  1. Not at all bad for your first attempt takes many hours of practice to master needle felted faces.
    I still love your little bear in your profile photo, I think he's a style worth repeating.
    Thanks for stopping by today and to answer your it's not what I see when I look out of my window...I look up on the mountain from below.

  2. Hi Heather! I think your little bear turned out great! Your needle felting really compliments the paw pads. I think it's getting to be time for you to spread your wings and try some mohair! And if you haven't tried it by the time I get to Michigan at Christmas, I'm going to bring you some!

  3. Thanks guys :)

    Yeah, for a first try, not shabby XD

    Plus, now I can go back and make little tweeks to the pattern too, and hopefully bear #2 will turn out better!

  4. Just came over from Bearly Sane because your comment on her blog caught my eye. I love your little black bear, he is adorable.
    Tuesday Blessings across blogland.

  5. Hi!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I'll be taking Sandi's advice and doing a give-away soon... one with fewer stipulations than Pay It Forward, XD
