I tried to keep my first needle felting attempt simple.  I made a little bear named "Patrick."  His arms and legs do not move.


My second attempt was at making a bunny named "Kylie."  The legs and arms are moveable, so she can sit or stand.  I haven't had time to make her a dress.

Incredibly cute. I can't offer anything more useful than that because what I know about needle felting could be written on the back of a postage stamp, but they look pretty awesome to me.

I keep seeing the phrase "needle felting".  What is needle felting?  (Very, very cute, btw!  I especially love the bunny Smiley )

*EDIT* - Just snooped around and found this:

Patrick reminds me of a story book we had when I was a kid about a bear called Corduroy who gets lost in a store overnight.  And there was another one about how he loses the button from his overalls and has to get a new one.  I think you did a great job and I especially love Patrick"s overalls!

The face on the bear is so precious!!!  He looks almost alive somehow.  Love the bunny too, great job!
