New project - a little bear


I was a bit undecided (what an understatement), what i want to do next….

So i pulled out all my furs and mohair and looked at them.

Nothing really spoke to me … so i tuck them away again and went watching TV.
All the time i was thinking, what to do - what to do … and was thinking about felting a few test heads to practice, or a few eyes - also to practice.

Then i went to my working table again after TV, and i still didn’t really make up my mind.
So again - i pulled out my box with mohair and furs for minis ….

And this is what i choose in the end :


It is really soft and silky - made of micro fibre.
The bear might be a little bit above 10 cm …. smaller i would like to do … but i can’t - they look terrible when i make them.
Which is a shame, because a little bit smaller, and i could make 2 out of such a little plate :D


The little dashes on the bottom of the legs and around the nose, are a help for me to line up better, all 2 mm a dash.
And please don’t laugh at me for drawing the sewing line AND the cutting line … my guessing is really bad when it comes to this, and i don’t want to end up with 1mm seam allowance at the pieces.
