First, I want to thank very much each and everyone in this forum for educating me in a brand new craft!!!!! 
I first made 2 micro teddy bears (1 and 1/2 inch tall) out of acrylic/wool knitting yarn, but after seeing other 1rst projects, well, I became too shy to show them...   So, this is my third attempt, made of roving (much easier).  The nose, mouth and insides of the ears are in regular felt.  Clovis is movable.



Thanks for looking, (and please don't be too harsh...)

Oh please don't be shy in sharing.
We all have different talents.
I for one, have never needle-felted anything that small.
You're doing well, keep on enjoying the roving  Smiley

Thank you so much, Jane Doe, you are giving me the courage to show this  (and they are movable):




quite pitiful, but now at least I know I can get better with more practice!

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

Aww, Clovis is adorable!  Either a poodle, or a fancy Bedlington Terrier!  And movable, that's impressive!  You're off to a GREAT start!

Thank you bcgrote!  You're very encouraging (and I need it, as I am so impressed by other felters' work)
